Classes

I teach classes for youth and adults at the Johns Creek Arts Center in Johns Creek, 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

(Most classes are on hold from May-August for Summer Camps)

 

Photoshop Independent Study (Adult)

For students with some familiarity with the program (though I can help guide you if you’re still new to it) who want to pursue their own specific projects with guidance and help.  We’ve done book layouts, character design, life drawing, portrait painting, and more in this class.  This one does typically run during the summer.

Digital Character Design (Adults and Teens)

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.

Digital Illustration (Teens and Adults)

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.

Creative Writing (Teens and Adults)

If you are the kind of person who has whole worlds and casts of characters living in your mind, this is the class for you!   We’ll explore behavioral psychology and Jungian archetypes to help create believable characters that can drive your story forward.  Then we’ll learn some tricks to making a believable fictional world and compelling descriptions. We’ll finish with a rundown of story structure to help you figure out exactly where to go with your plot.

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.
