Comic Book Storytelling with Kate Rhoades

Comic Book Storytelling with Kate Rhoades

March 18th at the Building Imagination Center.

Funded by a grant from the CSU Entertainment Industry Initiative, the CSU Stanislaus Art Department is hosting a series of guest workshops for CSU Art Majors around the theme of storytelling in the digital arts. This workshop will include a brief artist’s talk, an overview of contemporary independent/experimental comics, and a hands-on crash course in comic-making basics. There will be drawing, but no experience is necessary.

kateRhoadesKate Rhoades is an Oakland-based artist. Influenced by a background in comic books and YouTube videos, Rhoades uses paint, publications, and digital media to probe the absurdity of the art world in all its social and institutional facets. She received a BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design and an MFA from Mills College.

This series of workshops will conclude with a public exhibition of student work in the CSU Stanislaus’ Building Imagination Center. Limited to Stanislaus State students only.
