In this class, students will observe and discuss successful characters from visual media (film, animation, comics, games) and apply fundamental storytelling and design practices to the creation of their own character. The class will feature exploration of character development through a variety of approaches, including research, sketching and ideation, and application of drawing media. Students will produce a final character portfolio, featuring illustrations and a brief written narrative. For more information about our newest art instructor go to www.lafesmith.com.
