REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, January 15th!Workshop Description
Instructor C.J. Guzan teaches students how to create finished comics and cartoons using the creative process and various tools. C.J. personalizes the class for each student, working with everyone individually throughout the week to find, develop, and complete a designated number of comics by the end of the day!
The class will focus on creating at least one well-developed and fully polished comics by the end of the day (However,1-4 excellent comics by the end of the day is not uncommon). The comics and cartoons drastically vary from student to student, as is the purpose. C.J.'s methods encourage students to try new ideas, change perspectives, and develop individual thoughts and styles. Each student that takes this class will walk away from the experience having started with a small idea, and developing it into something tangible and real. Students will primarily use graphite, ink, and colored pencils.
2020 will be C.J.’s seventh year teaching Comics & Cartoons, as well as his first year teaching Improv Performance at The Art Garage! C.J. earned his Bachelor of Art Degree from St. Norbert College in 2014 and has had numerous successful published comic strips, the most notable of which being Rudy & Robby. C.J. takes pride not only in his ability to teach kids the necessary skills to create original comics and cartoons, but also in how he educates his classes on how to follow one’s creative instinct, think critically, and find joy in the creative process! He began performing Improv in 2010 and has been a professional Improviser and Actor ever since, performing in well over 1000 Improv Shows (He lost count after 700) with numerous groups including Mojo Dojo, iO Chicago, ComedyCity, and The SqueezeBox Comedy Group (A traveling Improv Group he created with some of the best Improvisers in Wisconsin)! He teaches Improv at St. Norbert College as well as Improv Workshops for businesses and private groups all over Wisconsin. He can also be seen on numerous Commercials, TV Shows, Films, and Web Series. C.J. wants all prospective students to know that his classes are designed to be personalized, supportive, and most of all FUN! He’ll see you soon!
