Illustration for Young Artists (8-18yrs)

Students will receive weekly assignments with resource material via email.  They will email Nina photos of their progress along with reference photos, and will meet with her at a scheduled time on Saturdays for live critique and lesson via Zoom, about 30 mins.  If the day/time doesn’t work for your schedule, Nina can make other arrangements with you.  The course trajectory over 6 weeks is as follows:

  1. Animal study with colors, shapes, and textures
  2. Colorful Landscape
  3. Character Development
  4. Children’s Book Creation: characters & storyline
  5. Ink Illustration
  6. Accordian Book


This course is suitable for iPad as well.  If you want to take this course in a digital format, the instructor will adjust your assignment accordingly.  An iPad, stylus (such as Apple Pencil), and the Procreate app are required for digital application.
