Join Laurie for a fun virtual cartoon drawing course where you will learn how to draw characters from the inside out, using simple, then more complex shapes. You will learn about line, light and shadow, colour, shading and expression. Laurie will show you how to turn your character around seeing them from many angles. Laurie will be drawing digitally on a Cintiq sharing her screen with you on Zoom. Whether you are comfortable drawing cartoons or have little experience, all you need is your imagination for this class.
Zoom ID and password will be provided by email.
Pencil, paper, eraser, printer paper or sketchbook, coloured pencils
Please note there will be no class on April 3rd (Easter weekend).
