Great visual storytellers come from all walks of life, professions and art forms. They are the unique few who function as both author and artist—generating original, creator-owned content that can entertain our imaginations, challenge our notions of self and truth or engage an audience to its core. That level of visual storytelling becomes an unforgotten experience: influencing an audience and inspiring generations to come. 

In all forms of advertising, fine arts, game design, picture books, graphic novels, film, illustration and animation, there is a growing demand for talented and original-content creators. Within these professions, a deep understanding and knowledge of story and visual communication is required. 

The following visual narrative courses provide instruction in visual storytelling, authorship, self-publishing and print production. These courses offer experimentation in the multidisciplinary creative processes of visual storytelling, along with skills needed in printing and publishing, in order to contribute to the growing story-driven landscape in today’s professional marketplace.
