The purpose of the Illustration Class is to learn how to tell stories with art. The first two sessions will focus on parts of a story – characters, setting, and plot. The final two sessions will focus on putting those pieces together to create full scale illustrations of different kinds. These classes are OPEN TO ALL AGES.
