Art of Cartooning
Learn to draw, paint, and have fun developing creative characters and creatures. Develop visual and written stories full of action and surprise. Students also explore narrative elements such as point of view, character expressions, and environments.
Students create and design their own code name to represent an aspect of their own identity. By developing basic graffiti elements: tags, throws, and pieces, students will incorporate imagery demonstrating their understanding of symbolism, typography, and color relationships. Ideas are developed by sketching with markers and pencils and final ideas will be spray painted on an outdoor wall. A study of the history of graffiti from controversial statements to high art will be explored.
