Drawing for Comics & Cartoons 1M22

Age Group:

Hone your drawing skills and advance your personal style. With tools and tricks used by cartoonists and illustrators, create memorable characters: humorous, heroic and anything in between. Set a scene, create drama and deliver a punchline in a single image or sequentially. Get the most out of your pencil sketches, then finish them off with ink and markers. This course is designed for beginners or those with some drawing experience.

All levels welcome. Limit 8 students
