ART DIRECTOR - SCULPTOR
Make your own comic and explore storytelling through art! In this 2-4 session program, students are introduced to inspirational comics throughout history and the wonderful world of zines and memes. Explore developing themes, characters, and storyboarding, then collaborate or work individually to create original comic artwork. Drawing techniques are facilitated through engaging exercises, from basic human forms to exaggerated features used in character creation. Artworks can be professionally printed for participants to keep.
Young people can immediately identify with comics. It's a medium open to any art style and striking results can be achieved with any level of artistic experience.
This program explores comics through history and uncovers amazing artists, some who use stick figures to deliver their message, and some who spend countless hours rendering a single panel and everything in-between. Fingle Sin uses their own experience as a visual artist to teach young people to create the best they can within their ability and to celebrate the result.
Students are guided to see art as a communication tool and look at instances where people were not being heard and discovered a way to overcome that using visual art.
Drawing lessons vary from class to class, typically covering how to draw the basic human form, human faces and how to identify and exaggerate features to create a character. The highlight of these workshops is discovering how art can facilitate self-expression. The feedback session is funny and engaging and is always the point where we go from an art class to a team.
Comic workshops can help connect disjointed classes such as mixed year classes in smaller schools that have trouble integrating. Workshops can be geared toward a theme or issue as requested. The workshop can meet curriculum requirements with themed comics.
With 20 years of extensive digital editing experience a quality final product is guaranteed, and students will have the opportunity to experience their work in a polished and professional format that they can be proud of.
