DRAWING BASICS

 

TUESDAY

Painting Rocks!
with Ernie

 

Prepare rocks, then paint them to resemble animals. Simple characters – beetles, turtles, owls – will be easy enough for all levels, and offer challenging detail for more advanced students. Sketch on paper, then paint designs with acrylics on prepared rock surfaces.

ANIMATION BASICS

4:00-5:00
Simon's Cat
with Betsy

 

Learn the principles and process of animation. You'll draw 12 or more poses of Simon’s Cat each week to animate a simple action. We'll combine all for a "gag" reel at end of term.

 

 

WEDNESDAY WATERCOLORS

 

5:00-6:30
Yona of the Dawn
with Betsy

 

After transfering line-art drawings to watercolor paper, students will work on two pieces each week so that one piece can dry while artists work on the other. Pieces will feature a single character from Yona of the Dawn, as well as varying background elements, such as clouds, trees, water, or simple buildings.

 

ANIME INKING

 

FRIDAY
4:00-5:00
RWBY
with Betsy

 

Following a step-by-step process each week, students will learn to sketch characters from the animated series RWBY (pronounced Ruby) then apply simple inking techniques to enhance their artwork.

 

 

FRIDAY DIGITAL DRAWING

 

5:00-6:30
My Little Pony
with Betsy

 

Every week we'll draw ponies, practicing different techniques every week. After drawing on paper, we'll re-draw on the computer, learning basic Photoshop. Original artwork will be formatted and reproduced as stickers.

JLI Academy Art Instruction is Process Oriented


Lead artists guide participants through a series of lessons including demos, exercises, practice, and critique. Each term includes an opportunity to create one or more finished pieces, either following a common design, or students may choose to design their own projects.

Offering this level of learning, along with preparing Lead Artists to teach effectively at this level, is JLI Academy’s primary service goal.
