Spooky Cartoon Characters with Isaac Lopez!

Character design is a huge component in all forms of entertainment. Our favorite scary season films are great examples of how a character’s story and appearance shape the character themselves. The goal of this class is to engage the student in the many elements and principles of art at a beginner level, while also showing the steps of building their very own spooky character. Each day as an element is introduced it will be explored and tied in with a step to building their character until it is enough to fully develop their project. Color, texture, shape, rhythm and harmony will be utilized and taught to create the figure, clothing, color, and even pet of the child’s spooky character. Ages 6+

Saturdays 12:00-2:00 PM

Instructor: Isaac Lopez
Session Dates: October 19th ($35.00)
October 26th ($35.00)
November 2nd ($35.00)

Skill Building Drawing Program with Liam Vogel

This semi private drawing program is intended to help students develop and improve their drawing ability, no matter what skill level they currently have. Students will be given different traditional drawing exercises depending on their skill level and artistic interests. The instructor will work with each student one on one, in a semi private format, to determine the best possible course of development. Classes will end with a discussion of that days assignments, followed by a critique of  the work that was accomplished. Students may bring outside assignments if they require assistance with a particular drawing that they hope to complete. All materials for in class assignments will be supplied by the instructor, but students are encouraged to get a sketchbook for working outside of class. The instructor will provide each student with optional sketchbook assignments for drawing exercises, which is considered an essential practice for any developing artists. Due to the class being offered in a semi private format, class size is very limited, so students must pre register in advance.

Class is 10:00am-12:00pm and is open to all styles of drawing (illustration, observational realism, etc)
