Course Description

If you’re inspired by animation, comics, video games or manga and wish to develop your own characters and stories, this workshop is for you. Create your own original character from hand-drawn sketches and leave class with a series of finished drawings and further knowledge of these exciting industries. Characters are brought to life by emphasizing emotions through facial expression and action through full body gesture drawing. Students will explore props and accessories to create a convincing personality for their characters. Design elements such as proportion and silhouette will be introduced and will serve to refine the character’s individual identity and story. Appropriate for all artistic levels.
