Ages 8-16

This class is for older children that enjoy drawing and developing their own ideas.


Each term we will work on the different stages to create a final illustration such as character design, composition, perspective, colour, etc. We'll start from the idea and end up with a final coloured image.


The children can focus on their own style whether is Manga, Comic book, very "cartoony" or more traditional illustrations. All concepts apply equally.


The lesson can be taken on a tablet ( for digital illustration) or using a sketchbook ( for traditional illustration)


 Students will be encouraged to discuss their work at the end of the session.

This course focuses on developing;
