Illustrative Painting

Illustration by Janice Liu

Illustration by Janice Liu

This 8-week course covers both watercolour and gouache painting. Looking at both historic and contemporary illustrators for inspiration, teens will learn to bring their drawings to life with a better understanding of colour, contrast, and form.

We will do some studies and observational work, as well as more stylized and expressive pieces. Students are encouraged to strengthen their drawing fundamentals, but also to explore the styles and subjects that they are interested in.

Beginners and intermediate artists are all welcome! All supplies are included.
