Digital Illustration: Character Creation Online

Fall 2020 registration is open!



Learn to illustrate your favorite Disney, Manga, and Anime characters!

In this class young artists will focus on human anatomy and proportions, telling a story in a single image, exaggerating a pose or facial expression to push the mood, color theory to enhance character design, and more. Students will learn and improve their skills in Photoshop (or Krita) through live tutorials, guided lessons, and practice both during and after class hours.

Hands-on for Students, Hands-off for Parents: Students will explore the artistic process with a STEAM approach and seek creative solutions alongside other students their age. Through guided projects and peer feedback, students will have the opportunity to interact with other artists and share their interests in all things anime!
