This online course will use excellent children’s books as inspiration as we create our own illustrations with traditional media such as watercolour, acrylic paint, coloured pencils and black ink. We will explore various techniques, textures and color theory. This course establishes the fundamentals of pictorial language, critical thinking, composition study, and rendering skills. Students will use traditional drawing, painting techniques to complete artwork and develop the work habits necessary to execute successful thumbnail sketches to final illustrations. We will arrange for materials to be shipped to you for $10, or you may pick them up.
This class lends itself well to digital media. Students may bring a tablet and stylus if they choose to do so. We recommend an iPad or iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. Procreate app will be used in class for digital students.
