Join us for a unique partnership between Lakeland Community College, The Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program. This three session mini-course explores the deepening connections between fine arts, film, and graphic fiction. The course consists of three one-hour weekly live video conferences, which explore the origins, genres, and influences of graphic fiction and narrative. Your on-camera host is Dr. Patrick McLaughlin, Lakeland's expert in fantasy literature, science and graphic fiction, as well as the host of the acclaimed Comics Symposium. Dr. McLaughlin examines the various intersections of fine art, graphic fiction and narrative in a dynamic and engaging fashion. He'll address your questions and introduce you to the stunning sources of visual and conceptual ideas for authors/illustrators such as Art Spiegelman (Maus) and others working in this genre through the visionary lens of Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics. Not only are these works thought-provoking and imaginative, but they represent a new direction in education; schools all over the country are using graphic fiction works such as Maus and Persepolis for an integrated approach to teaching language arts and social studies.
