Moderator: Panayiotis Terzis

Technician and faculty member, RisoLAB, MFA Visual Narrative Department.

Come join us and learn about our continuing education course offerings directly from the faculty that teach them. We have classes that utilize our new RisoLAB to a workshop on building interactive worlds to a story-based photo class. For those interested in our Riso courses, we invite you to bring along a few pieces of black-and-white imagery (8.5x11") for a brief, hands-on session in the RisoLAB.

Visual Narrative

The Visual Narrative program aims to address the growing need for talented, original content creators, by giving writer/artists a place to write and illustrate their own stories.

The media for creating visual stories is vast—including motion graphics, film, animation, picture books, graphic novels—and the marketplace to present stories—printed media, online, ebooks, social media—is constantly evolving.


Some of our courses give you access to our RisoLab—where you can create your own zines, posters or mini comics.

We offer artists an opportunity to self-publish, or just experiment, on our Risograph Duplicator—combining the vibrant colors of silkscreen printing with the speed and automation of digital and offset printing.

We also offer courses for those interested in children’s book publishing, or those who want to create their own zine or mini-comic.

Online courses are available.
