In the Creative-Arts Classes, students study the essential elements of how to illustrate and create their own comics, sketches, and paintings.
For Comics, class time includes the study and practice of basic drawing techniques, character design, inking, storyboarding, scripting, and paneling.
For Sketching and Painting, students explore different aspects such as portraiture, perspective, still life, realism/abstraction, color theory, line and patterning, landscapes and figure painting.
With a variety of tools and techniques, students have an excellent opportunity to hone and express their creativity.
