Description

Class Experience

Students will practice developing unique characters with distinct backstories, personalities, and visual characteristics.
Students will work on developing their own drawing style, analyzing Japanese manga or anime style and American cartoons or comics.
Students will learn how to use abstraction and exaggeration to create a caricature.
I hold a Bachelors in Fine Art from Virginia Tech and a Masters in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and am a former public school art teacher. I love teaching drawing, painting, sculpture and Photoshop to learners of all ages. There's a special place in my heart for creative works and the artists that make them, especially fantasy stories and narrative artworks, comics and graphic novels.
Students may choose to continue working on their drawings outside of class.
Drawing pencils preferred Large eraser (pink, white or fun shapes) and/or Art Gum Eraser (preferred) White printer paper or drawing paper Colored Pencils, Markers, or Crayons A current photo of the student or someone on which to base a caricature
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
