Who does not LOVE creating funny faces with their drawing!? Changing the eyes, noses, clothes and hair can yield a new character every time! Not only will students learn to sketch parts of the human face, adding emotion and hilarity, but we will look at many styles of cartooning and animation. Manga, The Ghibli Anime studios, Looney tunes, Hannah Barbara, or classics like Popeye, Spiderman, and the Flintstones all strike a chord with comic lovers of every age.
We will work in pencil, pen, ink, watercolor, colored pencil, and possibly your tablet! We will also talk about stereotyping. The same tool that we use to create cartoon characters can also be hurtful in our daily life, so it is important to create with care. This class is SO fun, and I am excited to see students' work! Please join us!
