Cut-ups & Spills: Making Abstract Comics with Erin Curry

Cut-ups and Spills: Experiments in Making Abstract Comics with Erin Curry

This is a playful one day workshop based on expanding your visual vocabulary with found and traditional materials. We’ll use the magic of panels and repetition to establish tone and rhythm within your comics to evoke topics and subjects you care about. Bring interesting scraps of paper and odd objects to make interesting marks.
