This is cartooning class plus! In this class, young artists will develop a cartoon character and create its comic book story. The class will follow the cartoon theme created by the students. During the session they will be designing, drawing, and working in 2D and 3D. This class has been selling out and we are happy to offer our own little Comic Con. All materials included.

Before becoming a teacher, Heather Bennett founded "The Late Night Milk Run," a 15-year-old online business specializing in hand-made sculptures (plush dolls) and prop designs. Her work has been featured in publications including ELLE, Glamour, Milk Magazine (France), and Linda Wonen (Holland). Her dolls and artwork have also been seen on TV shows such as HBO's "Girls" and "Modern Family."

 

Drawing Mixed Media

Ages 5-8
Paint, Draw & More! offers drawing and painting classes that allow your child to express their creativity, while we teach them technical skills that help them blossom and build self-esteem through their artistic accomplishments. Our classes are fun, engaging and each project is developed with your young artist in mind. Younger and older children alike will build an image vocabulary and develop problem-solving skills through the medium of art. Paint Draw & More! classes assist creative development and will enhance students' intellectual growth and understanding of math, history and the sciences. Drawing fundamentals like shape, contour, design, color and medium are progressively used every week so your child can create new and varied works of art they can be proud of, and excited to share.

Ages 9-13
Paint Draw & More is proud to have perfected the art of igniting children's creative instincts. Our fun and informative drawing classes for older children and teens are specially designed to build on your child's knowledge of drawing, and to teach them technical skills as they develop their unique style. This advanced drawing class will provide a variety of drawing mediums, or children can choose to bring their own. We encourage students to work in black and white, or color; whichever best achieves their vision. Students are asked to bring a sketchbook to class, but it is not mandatory.
