WRT 282 - Comics, Composition and Creativity (4 Cr.)

(GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies area)
Many children learn to read by reading comics, yet for years comics were, at best, considered poor writing and were banned from classrooms and libraries. Today, however, comics have become a multi-million-dollar industry and have captured both the popular and scholarly imaginations. Why is this so? This class seeks to investigate this paradox and other related big questions (what is originality? What makes great art great?) by examining comic and sequential art through its representative genres and diving into the creative process itself. No prior drawing experience required. This class fulfills the WEC requirement. Prerequisite: WRT 181  or WRT 181H  or FYS 100W  or sophomore standing or College Writing Proficiency (CWP). Fall semester. Sterling.
