Illustration Learning Targets
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. You’re never too young or old to start learning about art!
