Personal Stories In Comics with Gabrielle Bell

Description: 

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 16/06/2021 - 20/06/2021
    
The evolution of the graphic novel over the last 60 years is complex, and the mainstream history of that evolution only scratches the surface of how independent writing/drawing, alternative perspectives and comics rooted in the art world, rather than the mainstream publishing/superhero sphere, have contributed to and inspired the way we think about comics in 2020. This course is an opportunity to live, work and study with one of the most acclaimed pioneers of that underground tradition, Gabrielle Bell. It's about using the language of images and words together to create compelling stories based on your personal life. At the end of the week, you'll have accumulated several short comics, each one stronger than the previous, and a confidence that you can create a comic, from the beginning to the end, about whatever you like.

During the workshop, we will:

Learn and discuss an overview of the history of independent and autobiographical comics - read and discuss key examples, and gain a detailed image of the landscape of this compelling artformDevelop your comics drawing and writing skills in a holistic, integral way, using our own personal storiesExplore character development - learn how to create complex and unique characters in your workPractice figure drawing, and drawing from the "right side of the brain"Explore design, layout, color and editing of pages

Finally, every participant will create a minicomic, which will (if you want, of course) be published on our in-house imprint and distributed worldwide.

All levels of experience are welcome. You don't need to know how to draw or write well - everyone from absolute beginners to experienced cartoonists can benefit from Gabrielle's workshop.

Brooklyn-based cartoonist Gabrielle Bell has made some of the most celebrated alternative comics of the last two decades, from her 2003 Ignatz Award-winning semi-autobiographical series "Lucky" to her 2012 globe-trotting epic "The Voyeurs". In 2017 she released "Everything is Flammable" to huge critical acclaim - the book chosen as one of the best graphic novels of 2017 by Entertainment Weekly, was a finalist for the 2017 Los Angeles Times Book Prize as Best Graphic Novel/Comic, and was nominated for a Broken Frontier Award for Best Graphic Non-Fiction.

Gabrielle collaborated with director Michel Gondry on a film adaptation of her book "Cecil and Jordan in New York", and also on "Kuruma Tohrimasu", a collection of drawings and photographs made during the production of the film.

Her work has been selected multiple times for Best American Comics and the Yale Anthology of Graphic Fiction, and she has contributed to McSweeneys, Bookforum, The Believer, and Vice Magazine.

DRAWin festival 2018 - Day 2: Day of Workshops: Drawing, Sound, Movement

Wednesday 4 April 2018, 12-8pm. Fabrica Gallery, Brighton

Day Two of DRAWin festival will include five bookable workshops provided by international and local artists and performers. This year’s theme will focus on drawing in relation to sound and movement; an investigation of the sound of drawing not as a by-product, but as an added layer to the pieces. The workshops will explore drawing as performance and strategies for forming a dialog between drawing, sound, dance, process and performance. Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. Workshops will target different groups and issues in drawing and performance and will allow the general public the opportunity to experience an art form first hand, work with and be tutored by some of the leading artists in their field. There's no experience required to join the workshops and all abilities are welcomed.

Some materials will be supplied but if there are any materials of your own you would like to bring, please do.

All workshops are suitable for all ages including children and family audiences and for those with or without drawing/dance experience.
