This class reviews important core skills of drawing and applies them to creativity and
storytelling. In this course, students will learn fundamentals such as figure drawing, colour
theory, and perspective and use these skills to construct their own posters, characters, and
worlds. Students will practice together before going on to create their own original works. The
teacher will work alongside individual students to build brainstorming, sketching, and critiquing
skills as they move towards a finished piece. Some previous drawing experience is
recommended but not required.
