Graphic Art and Medicine: 8 part series

Comic art combines the individual’s internal world of thoughts and ideas, with the external expressiveness of words and art. Graphic Medicine uses this pathway to communicate human experience with health and illness, both as a practitioner and patient. This course explores medicine from all manners of experience using art. It allows development of storytelling techniques and expression, and helps the learner incorporate art into their skill set for their medical/art career and beyond.

Each session will build on previous sessions for finding, exploring, and refining a story related to medicine using graphic art. Learners are expected to have their preferred art supplies for drawing at each session. First session requirement also includes a personal item from their past (comic book, children’s book, or similar).
