Students will learn the latest trend, and a great form of self-expression, in the illustration world. Working in a mixed media sketchbook, we will be exploring image, text, drawing and painting techniques to create illustrations for a self-portrait poster, favorite book cover, comic strip and a final project. Students will be looking at the work of relevant art/artists, including DC Comics, Shepard Fairey, Mary GrandPré (Harry Potter illustrations) and Mary Jane Begin. Sketchbooks are an essential part of the application portfolio for future exhibitions and most art schools. This is a great opportunity to build a body of work that will showcase your creativity. Experimentation is encouraged. This is a 2-part seven-week class: sign up below for Session I and Session II separately
