From body shape to color scheme and clothing, every visible element of a character can give a viewer insight about who they are. Join us for this two-week intensive class as you learn how to design memorable and original characters. As you create a new personality for your character, dive further into shape language, silhouette, and costume design. After experimenting with illustrations and the development process, students will transform their sketches into a final three-dimensional version of their character. 

A friends-and-family showcase of all student work will be held at the end of the two-week class.
