What you'll learn in this kids drawing class:

This course guides students through the process of bringing illustrations to the next level by creating unique comics and graphic novels. Emphasis is placed on storytelling, introducing students to character development, plot structure, scripting, and storyboarding. 

Skills in pencilling, inking, coloring, space, and perspective are introduced through the use of a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional media, which may include colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors, digitally edited drawings, and/or handmade zines. 

Artist presentations, trips to the Art Institute of Chicago, and visits to downtown Chicago's vast array of public art provide inspiration and drawing practice as an entry into the basics of comic narrative and stylization. *Basic drawing skills are helpful, but not required.

Question from Anonymous
Hello. My son will be 7 years old this month. He has been expressing interest in writing and creating a book. I have been searching the internet for a writing class workshop to enroll him in. We live in Oakpark Il but are willing to bring him downtown. Would you have a program similar to this one for his age?

Hi there! The school does actually offer MSP (10-13 ages) class such as this ECP one but only in the Summer term/Camps. Hope this helps!
