Description

Class Experience

Students will learn basic and midlevel drawing fundamentals. This will include line weight, shape building,  shading techniques, and seeing creative solutions to simple shapes. Students will learn how to set up a drawing, the tools of drawing, how to trust their intuition, make mistakes and turn those mistakes into unique monster features.
Hi everyone! I'm Nick. I'm a professional graphic designer and illustrator. I've had an interesting career, illustrating t-shirts for big stores, designing for a variety of companies across the world. I'd like to share some of my knowledge with you.

I believe fundamentals are key. I think understanding the basics and starting all work with a pencil and paper are essential to doing good work. I also really believe that it should be fun. Art is fun! Trying new things is fun! Making weird noises while you draw is fun!

I will be teaching basic drawing classes, idea creation classes, designs classes, typography classes, and illustration classes. I want to help you learn how to approach art from different angles, try weird stuff to get unexpected results.
Students will need to be ready with paper, pencil, and eraser. They can use printer paper or a sketch notebook. A number 2 school pencil is fine or they can bring a drawing set of pencils. A white, red, or gummy eraser will work.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools. It might be kinda of fun for your learner to look up some cool monsters before the class to get some ideas and get those creative juices moving.
