Classes

I teach classes for youth and adults at the Johns Creek Arts Center in Johns Creek, GA and the Hudgens Art Center in Duluth, GA!  If you or your child is interested in learning drawing techniques, here are a few of the classes I have to offer:

Johns Creek Arts Center

Wildlife Illustration

Learn techniques for improving your animal anatomy using photo references and life studies of real skulls and wings!  Bring a sketchpad, pencils, and erasers, and we’ll discuss materials for a final project partway through class.

Teen Digital Graphic Novel

Learn how to use Photoshop and Illustrator to sketch, layout, and finish pages for a graphic novel.  Come ready with ideas, and we’ll walk through the process of character design, scripting, panel design, inking, flats, and shading.

Teen Digital Illustration

Learn the basics of how to use Photoshop and Illustrator to make finished digital illustrations.  We’ll be working from your own scanned sketches to get used to operating the programs.

Cartooning I

For kids ages 7-12, this is a fun traditional-media introduction to designing cartoon characters.  Learn shape theory, how to keep characters looking the same drawing after drawing, what rules you can break to create unique looking cartoons, and how to draw hands, facial expressions, and characters in motion.

Cartooning II

For kids ages 9-13, this traditional media class focuses on the storytelling aspects of cartooning.  Learn how to write a script, plan panel layouts, draw thumbnails, and create finished pages of a comic strip or comic book page.

Teen Drawing and Illustration

Join our weird crew of art-loving teens on Friday nights to learn fundamental drawing techniques you’ll carry with you through your whole art career.  Each session features lessons in figure drawing and drawing from life, with every session focusing on different techniques or media.

 

Hudgens Center for the Arts
