From body shape to color scheme and clothing, every piece of a character gives the viewer insight about who they are. Join us for this two-week intensive class as we learn what it takes to design memorable and original characters, diving further into shape language, silhouette, and costume design. After experimenting with illustrations and the development process, students will transform their sketches into a final design of their characters.

Summer Class Equipment Requirements

From Head to Toe: Character Design will be using traditional art materials for exercises and final projects. 

Students enrolled in this course will be asked to obtain the following materials before class begins: 

  1. Camera/document camera (in addition to the camera they use for Zoom)

Each student will need this in order to present their work in class for review. If you do not have access to one of these devices, contact us so we may assist you.
