In Skyra’s Studio Art classes, your student will learn the foundations of making beautiful and fully realized studio art pieces. The concepts they master will be used throughout the rest of their creative careers! The art classes offer insight and technical instruction on how best to create comic books and storyboards. Telling a story through panels, movement, mood, and expressive color and line brings a narrative to life and is an invaluable skill for any artist or visual storyteller. We’ll add essential tools to the creative toolbox, and help tell some amazing stories with art.

FUNDAMENTALS OF DRAWING
Learn to draw and “see” as an artist. Drawing is a powerful tool; you can truly learn to draw anything through the fundamentals. Students will get to draw many different subjects, both from life and from photographs. Using charcoal and graphite, we will explore value, composition, perspective, and so much more! Learn the fundamentals of drawing/painting by analyzing shapes in life, learning how to apply value and dimensionality, and exploring composition. Learn the basics of anatomy and perspective and how to apply those skills to life drawing.
COLOR THEORY PAINTING
Students will receive instruction in the many facets of Acrylic/Water Color Painting. There will be subject and figure painting, plen air, still life, and even a collaborative group effort as part of the course. Many of the techniques learned will apply to other courses and disciplines within the visual arts: set and prop design, illustration, and concept art, to name a few. Learn about advanced color schemes, how to create them, apply them, and use them to create cohesive pieces of art that convey a feeling.
Storytelling, Illustration/Sequential Arts
Students will learn basic and intermediate techniques to create storyboard art. Storyboards are useful to creative directors and directors of photography in the animation and film industry as a template for translating the script into action during shooting. The course will also instruct students in how to adapt/interchange those skills (with the addition of a few more) into creating colorful, compelling comic books—a medium whose capacity for storytelling rivals even that of a film.
Learn how to effectively use either Adobe Photoshop or Procreate to create drawings using a variety of brushes, blending modes, and other tools available through the programs.
