The learned use of line, form, and value of black and white drawing is now applied to color theory. With the obtained knowledge of color theory students will learn to represent objects using color harmonies and using color to represent all values. Students will be introduced to many drawing and painting mediums, with painting-handling techniques and color mixing introduced. In addition to the morning core lessons, students may choose to spend time in alternative afternoon classes such as Character Development and Animal Drawing, Sci-Fi & Fantasy Illustration, Book Making, and Ceramics.

Characters are the most important component of any narrative. The story would be hard to follow without a character leading it and the creation of these characters is an important skill to posses as an artist. Understanding what is conveyed by a characters clothing, body shape, physical demeanor and coloration will help artists to create characters with intent and meaning. In this course students will cover the basic building blocks of a characters form with the circle, square and triangle, the psychology of color choice, the personality diamond and then place these characters within a mini-narrative.
