Students will learn to create visual stories in addition to exploring a variety of art materials. This course will begin with an introduction to an art medium such as graphite, watercolor, acrylic paint, pastels, and other similar materials along with projects that demonstrate storytelling techniques. By the end of the course, students will be equipped with the tools needed to create their own comic, illustration, or zine inspired by their personal stories and favorite artistic materials. Students will learn new creative techniques and utilize what works best for their own art projects. This class promotes empowerment and meaningful artmaking. All ages are welcomed!
