Upcoming classes



On Sunday afternoons (from 1:00 to 2:30 PST) in October, I’ll be teaching a four-session class for 5th – 8th graders called “Comics and Graphic Novels” through the Hugo House. The organization is generously offering four different fee options, so you pay what you can afford. More details can be found here.

On Wednesday afternoons (from 3:15 to 4:30 PST) from October 14 through December 2, I’m teaching an eight-session version of “Comics and Graphic Novels” for the same age group (5th through 8th grade). You can sign up for this class here (registration begins on 9/25). 


I’m co-teaching (along with David Lasky) a six-week class called “Graphic Novel Workout” that’s running from Oct. 17 through Nov. 21. For six consecutive Saturdays from 1:00 to 3:00 PST, we’ll put our students through the paces as we generate new work and develop comic-making skills. For more info, check out the website for Seattle’s Push/Pull here.

This is my first year teaching comics/graphic novels via Zoom, and I’ve really gotten comfortable with the platform after having to learn it on the fly in the Spring. While I miss being able to peek over my students’ shoulders to see what they’re working on, I’ve found the secure site Padlet.com to be a simple and useful substitute for my students to share their work and give/get feedback. It turns out that the comics medium translates pretty well for both teaching and learning online.


In that spirit, I’m also available for online one-on-one lessons, tutoring, or mentoring (both one-off and ongoing sessions) at the rate of $65/hr, payable in advance through PayPal. Contact me at gstump7@yahoo.com, or via my landline at 206.568.5059, for availability.
