Syllabus: 15-week DWWP class

Comments Off on Syllabus: 15-week DWWP class

DWWP is a 15-chapter book designed to accompany a typical university-level studio art class meeting three hours a week. However, if you are actually teaching a class like that, you will quickly realize that our book is quite generously overstuffed and there is almost no way you can touch on every single item in the book in the classroom.

PNCA Portland workshop 4-day comics writing syllabus

Syllabus: 10-week DWWP class

This syllabus could easily be used for a 12-week class as well. It would probably be enough to add a few extra work days, but you could also add back in some of the lessons we cut here, such as 5.2, “Figuring out the figure 1” and 12.2, “Figuring out the figure 2,”
