Unique in the Canadian post-secondary school system, the one year certificate program in Comics & Graphic Novels was created for students who have a desire to learn the language of visual storytelling. The program focuses on skills-based training for six primary career paths, including the creation (both in print and online) of:

  • comic books
  • comic strips
  • web comics
  • graphic novels
  • storyboards
  • edutainment comics

Camosun hosted its fourth annual Comic Arts Festival

The Camosun Comic Arts Festival celebrated the artistic and literary impact of comics and graphic novels created locally, nationally, and internationally.  Participants had the opportunity to hear, see and experience the process of visual storytelling and meet students, teachers, professional creators, publishers and other fans.

A highlight of the event was the “artists alley” showcasing publications and artwork created by 20 students in the Comics & Graphic Novels program. Professional guest mentors this year included Nelson Dewey, Gareth Gaudin, Karen Gillmore, Janine Johnston, Sam Logan, Deni Loubert, Glen Lovett, Glen Mullaly, and Alex Steacy. The keynote featured special guest creators Tony Cliff, Faith Erin Hicks, Sam Logan, and Renee Nault. Read more...
