About this Class

Delve into the beautiful world of sketching in this imaginative beginner drawing class.  Learn about colour, form, shape and composition using a wonderful variety of materials and techniques as you storyboard your world bringing it to life on paper.  Experiment with graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, crayons, chalk and pastels! 

In this intro class to illustration, children will learn the basic foundations of drawing and how to apply them in a stylised way to create illustrations. After experimenting with different mediums (pencil, ink, watercolour, pastel, mixed media, brush, sticks, collage) and exploring how line, tone, shape, negative space and perspective are used to enhance your drawing, children will begin to find their style and unique way of expression.

We will also learn the basics of gesture drawing and different ways of drawing people and animals. From there we will re-illustrate modern classics, giving old favourites a fresh new spin with your childs new skills and confidence as a little illustrator. 

First time sketchers ~  and all levels welcome!
