2021 Tin House Virtual Craft Intensive: You Can Do Anything With Words and Images, with Courtney Cook

October 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

In the words of Harvey Pekar, from which this course draws its name, “Comics are just words and images. You can do anything with words and images.” This generative course is designed to spark inspiration by providing an exploration of the nearly endless ways text and image can be combined to create a symbiotic relationship that strengthens work as a whole. Created for writers and artists at every level, this course aims to eradicate self-doubt and the belief that one must embody a certain level of artistic skill to employ utilizing illustrated or visual elements in their own work. Through examining graphic narratives by creators such as Kristen Radtke, Yumi Sakugawa, Kevin Huizenga, Allie Brosh, and Theresa Wong, and participating in a series of generative exercises, students will leave this course with an understanding of what makes an impactful and successful graphic narrative, the beginnings of their own graphic narratives they may apply this new understanding to, and a newfound confidence and fervor for bringing those graphic narratives into the world.

Tin House is proud to announce our latest virtual Craft Intensives Series. A series of 3-hour-long masterclasses lead by  Tin House Residents and Tin House Books Authors, these Intensives combine close reading, discussion, and in-class writing to offer a potent dose of inspiration and explore what makes writing work when it works. Join us!
