Class Descriptions

2D Animation

Want to learn animation but don’t know where to start? This class focuses on understanding the principles of animation using 2D hand-drawn skills. Students will learn about the basics of animation, creating storyboards, animatics, and all the ins and outs of the medium. The lessons are geared towards traditional paper animation and is the perfect starting point for artists ready to dip their toes into the world of moving pictures.

Being an Online Artist

This class is oriented to the growing number of artists who would like to learn to better navigate the art world through a professional lens, and for those who would like to be more confident in their presentation online. In this class, not only will we be drawing, but we will also be learning about the dos and don’ts of commission work, and what it takes to get commissions. Drawing and Online Presence is a class created for artists to explore their potential as a creator, and what that means for them.

Concept Art

Concept Art & Development is a class dedicated to creativity. In this class, students are invited to partake in the art of world-building, character design, environment design, and everything in between! Assignments and projects will revolve around student's honing their skills in illustration and design.

DND n' Comics (NEW! Starting 6/3/24)

In this class students will participate in character creation and illustration, play one-shot dnd sessions, and proceed to make comics about the events that occurred during their game! Through these exercises students will practice creating as an individual and working collaboratively to then experience and tell a story in comic-format. 

 

*This class is perfect for DND beginners! Preferably, students have some art-making experience/are comfortable with drawing. 
This class will be a slightly longer; sometimes taking more than 4 weeks to complete a cycle. And as such, is not as easy to drop into.

Horror & Hilarity in Comics (NEW!)

This class goes over the physical and mental process of making comics that are humorous, terrifying, or even both! Forge stories and draw from personal experience in your creative endeavors. 

Digital Art

Digital Art is meant for students to become familiar with digital arts materials and media. Students in this class will be challenged to illustrate different subjects using different traditional art techniques, using digital arts programs. This class is perfect for students of all kinds from total beginners to seasoned digital painters.

Drawing & Inking

Want to create a full story in the comic art form? In this class, we create comic pages and emphasize techniques to illustrate a story clearly. You will be working on sketching, penciling, and inking a maximum of 2 full 11x14 comic pages by the end of each month.

Storytelling in Comics

Comics is a powerful artform and one that is open to all types of collaborations and projects! In this class, throughout the year we'll look toward partnerships with film festivals and other art organizations and we'll develop comics' unique way of telling a story!

Manga Art & Illustration

This class will focus on developing styles closest to manga or manhua comics! Students will be taught to observe manga closely to study storytelling choices in Asian comics in order to create their very own comics and illustrations in the style of manga. (If your child enjoys anime/manga, this is the class that focuses on that style of art!)

Morning Manga

Morning Manga is for manga-style comic making! Students in this class will be challenged to improve their art skills by drawing manga style pages and comics. This class seeks to get students familiar with the comic making process and hone their stylization skills based on manga methods of storytelling and pacing.
