What you'll learn in this kids cartooning class:

For teens who love graphic novel art + cartooning, this class will set you up with the basics to grow confidence in your abilities to create beautiful art work and explore the art of storytelling! Creating graphic novel art is a fun challenge, you create an original story and bring it to life with awesome illustrations that combine a great plot + striking images! 

In this class with the help of an experienced graphic novel tutor you will:

  • Brainstorm a plot outline with a cast of characters, and setting for your graphic novel, then pick an art style and start storyboarding.
  • Design your characters, learn how to manipulate their physicalities to create their unique personalities and identities. Create a lead character that is memorable and unique. Give your main character specific personality traits and a unique perspective on the world.
  • Learn how to tell your story without words, introduce the setting, the universe your lead characters live in.
  • Isolate your lead character’s central conflict, an inciting incident that will eventually lead to a final resolution—and make sure the drawing style is consistent.
  • Explore how to bring your story to a climax: This is the high point of the story, where the main character has to make a major choice or decision.
  • Finally identify your resolution: this is where the main character ends up and whether they succeed or fail in their goal or desire.
  • Create panel to panel art and add word bubbles
  • Work in pencil, inks and introduce cool color for mood and tone.

With a little brainstorming, drafting, and polishing and practice you can create a graphic novel worth sharing in no time! If your teen adores this type of art they will love this class! Perfect for beginners or those who have taken a drawing class before and want to take their work to next level!

All Art supplies + canvas are included in course fee.
