About the Course

This class is an Introduction to intuitive narrative drawing using a sketchbook. We will explore how to tell a story without words, understand how text and images interact, and learn how color influences a message. As you develop your unique sketchbook you will be encouraged to tell your story through painting, drawing, and comics. Each week's lesson will be accompanied by an assignment to chronicle your daily experiences with your new mindful perspective. Materials list available at sharonartstudio.org

Mara Ramirez is a nonbinary artist, educator, and caregiver making comics in the Bay Area, California. Their comics are mainly autobiographical and somewhat experimental, and concern matters of intimacy, trauma, and healing. They play with abstraction and the action of mark making as a means of distorting (and in doing so, clarifying) their own experiences through the filter of emotion and memory. These stories range in content: existentialism, gender, and childcare are some of the topics that have emphasis.
