Comics Experience and Screen Experience’s next slate of courses is now open for enrollment!

All of our courses are live, online, and taught by instructors equally dedicated to their craft AND to helping you learn. Each course curriculum is carefully developed in conjunction with CE’s founder, Andy Schmidt, in order to present information that’s engaging, practical, and fun!

In addition to our live online class sessions, your enrollment includes access to a dedicated online forum offering ongoing discussion and support. Our forums have sparked careers, started friendships, and led to lasting creative partnerships! We’re proud of the community we’ve helped create, and we want you to be a part of it.

Recordings of each class session are available to all registered students. Whatever your schedule or time zone, you can view course recordings to make up missed classes or review key points, as often as you like, for up to two weeks after your course concludes.

Choose from any of our upcoming winter courses — all are available for enrollment NOW, with full descriptions on our course pages! Sign up in time for the holiday giving season, and start hitting your creative goals come 2019.

If you want to make comics, write, draw, letter, and color comics, or improve as a comics creator, you’ll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
