During this COVID-19 pandemic, we highly recommend parents and students stay on top of learning. We can, together, use this opportunity to explore, learn, and develop a new and exciting way to teach online art and design programs.
This class will be a more in depth, advanced version of our usual figure drawing. We will be focusing on anatomy: breaking down muscle groups, learning how they can be drawn in space, and understanding how they fit together on the body in different poses. There will be both short and long poses for gesture and rendering. Students will be using traditional media like graphite and charcoal.
Sam, Mon 4-6PM
Advanced Character Design (Digital) - Advanced
The class will cover graphic character design, no soft rendering. The teacher will put together a template of the character body types, similar to street fighter/super smash bros/mortal kombat characters. Students will be using PhotoShop to create a full body pose, a head shot, and a splash page for each character, estimating 2 character designs per student. The theme of the whole class will be graffiti/street art/junk yard. The teacher will develop a house style acting as the "art director" and will guide students to stick to this style as a whole class.
