In this advanced drawing class, students will learn about illustration techniques from seasoned illustrators at CMA! As young artists explore popular illustrators such as Jillian Tamaki and Sana Takeda, students will discuss character development, plot, and visual style, and employ these elements in their own work. The small group will have opportunities to workshop their ideas, giving each other constructive criticism and helping to hone each other’s concepts!
