In this very beginning level cartooning class, learn the basic techniques of cartoon drawing and doodling.
During this 1.5 hour course you will learn how to go from stick figures to actual faces. Learn the basics of drawing, create your own artistic style, get familiar with creating your own cartoon characters. Outcome will be actual fun cartoon faces and characters.
This course is ideally for beginner students or for folks who want to work on developing their own cartoon character.
Every class will start with a quick lecture and demonstration for the student to observe and have a PDF packet.
Then there will be time to actually draw and sketch based on the lesson within the session.
About the Instructor:
I have been teaching and drawing caricatures and cartoons for over 30 years. I have taught in public and private schools all over the world and have drawn for clients such as ABC News, MACYS, Dick Blick Holdings, American Airlines, Vayner Media and many more companies. I'm also very encouraging and patient with all of my students.
Materials Needed to Participate Fully:
What will be included in my Virtual Class package?
One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.
How many people is my purchase good for?
Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!
Will I need anything from home to use in the class?
You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.
Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?
Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.
Do I have to show my video or speak during class?
While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!
This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.
Still have questions? Ask the community.
Students may cancel at any time before the day of the class and receive a full refund.
