The portfolio is the single most important component of an art school application, and colleges across the nation are stepping up their requirements for admission. Most require several observational drawings, or drawings made from what we see, rather than from our imagination or a photograph.
Students in this class will have fun while learning the challenging skill of drawing from observation.
Short drawing exercises will give students the confidence and ability to tackle more finished works of art. Lessons will incorporate a variety of materials and genres such as still life and portraiture.
Developing and creating compelling, unique characters that stand out from the crowd is key to success in the comic arts, animation, and graphic design fields. In this class, students will learn the techniques used to design characters, participate in character development exercises, and complete assignments leading to the creation of original characters, both major and incidental.
