Students will work on the following:
Breakdown the characters traits, culture, lifestyle, history, etc.
Basic figure drawing techniques
Explore backgrounds, body position of the character, or other various design work to complement their rendering
Learn how to employ the same elements of design found in art (line, color, texture, shape).
Explore various types of clothing materials as inspiration for their rendering
Students will be using mediums such as (but not limited to) gouache, watercolor, color pencil, and more.
