About This Class

Inspiration is hard! isn't it? 

Sometimes we are more afraid of looking at a white piece of paper than jumping out of a cliff. This is due to lack of inspiration or imagination and we all experience it. 

Today I'm here to show you a way to work around "art block" by drawing something you are very familiar with, your everyday life. 

In this class we are going to go over:

  • How to start a drawing
  • Drafting
  • Basic techniques for setting up a scene 
  • How to make a cartoon of yourself
  • Creating a final simple illustration 

We will improve the following skills:  

  • Creativity
  • Story telling
  • Illustrating 

At the end of this class you will be able to: 

  • Draw a cartoon of yourself or your loved ones
  • Set up a scene
  • Create an illustration that conveys emotion
  • Have fun even when you are uninspired 

The class project will be to:

Draw a scene from your everyday life that people can relate to in a fun and simple way.
