Registration open for my art classes at the Visual Arts Centre!








I’m very excited to be teaching two classes at the Visual Arts Centre in Westmount this:  “Dessin et illustration/Drawing and Illustration” on Thursday mornings from 10am-1pm and “Illustration de bande dessinée/Comic Book Illustration” on Thursday evenings from 7pm-10pm. Classes begin on April 18 and go till June 6 (8 weeks). They will be taught in both English and French. Here are the two brief course descriptions that can be found on the VAC Fall/Winter program:

Dessin et illustration/Drawing and Illustration

Acquire the essential drawing skills necessary to support your interest in illustration. Class time will be divided between observational drawing and a series of thematic illustration projects based on your own interests. Learn more about form, shading, and perspective, while developing creative links between idea, word, and image. Materials include pencil, ink, and watercolour. No prerequisite necessary.

Illustration de bande dessinée/Comic Book Illustration

Combining images and words, comics are an exciting, accessible means of storytelling and self-expression. Learn basic illustration skills, including expressive figure drawing, inking, layout, character design, and storyline, which will then be brought together in the creation of your own short graphic book. The development of a unique voice and style will be encouraged. No previous experience in writing or drawing required.
