I'll be teaching drawing three classes in Juneau, one class for younger kids and two for teens, with details below. I'm also lucky enough to have a first Friday show at the Alaska Robotics Gallery on Front Street on the first of February with some of my old favorites.
The classes will be held:
- Saturday Feb. 9, 10am to noon at the Douglas Library for kids 2nd grade - 4th grade
- Saturday Feb. 9, 2pm -5pm at the Douglas Library for kids 5th grade - 12th
- Sunday Feb. 10, 2pm - 5pm at the Valley Library for kids 5th grade - 12th
The classes will be for any skill level and don't require any special pens, paper or markers, We'll supply some pencils, ballpoint pens, index cards and copy paper, but any of the kids have any special tools they want to bring, they're more than welcome.
The classes will revolve around using art to tell stories. I'll briefly go over some quick drawing techniques, but most of the class will be about using whatever enthusiasm they have to draw to tell a sequential story using some simple building blocks and examples from the best of comics. The teen class will be in two parts, but teens can attend both or either session without feeling left behind or that they're missing out.
If you have any questions about the class, don't hesitate to contact me.
