Every character has a story…

In this writing and drawing class, students will design a unique character including physical appearance and backstory. We’ll dive into what makes a character unique and compelling, and practice fine arts skills in portraiture and caricature to create characters for any kind of story. Students will work into a character portfolio and use references from different genre and media (fantasy, sci-fi, adventure, historical texts/ comic books, movies, biographies) as well as visual resources from nature and art history.
