New School for Cartoon Studies

cat garza pointed me to The Center for Cartoon Studies which opens for business this fall. Located in White River Junction in Vermont, this place will provide a two year program of study for aspiring cartoonists that centers on the creation and dissemination of comics, graphic novels and other manifestations of the visual narrative.

Experienced and internationally recognized cartoonists, writers, and designers will teach classes. I’m not sure who the instructors will be but check out the big name advisory board:

Steve Bissette
Will Eisner
Gary Groth
Sammy Harkham
William Horberg
Denis Kitchen
Scott McCloud
Chris Oliveros
Diana Schutz
Art Spiegelman
Eric Reynolds
R. Sikoryak
