Spring semester registration is open. One of my favorite college classes I'll be teaching this spring 2014 at NWACC is Advanced Graphic Illustration (ART 2364) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00pm-4:45pm starting on January 14th and ending May 1. Students will explore the styles and techniques of commercial illustration (books and magazines, concept art, music CDs, posters, packaging, etc.) and inking with basic illustration skills such as proportion, perspectives, and composition. (Pastel, watercolor, acrylic, etc. will also be used.) Students will learn both conventional hand rendered and computer illustration techniques.
I'll also be teaching Introduction to Studio Art (Art 1033) from 6:00pm-8:45pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on January 14th and ending May 1. Through hands-on experience involving basic visual elements, students apply principles of design to projects in painting, drawing and sculpture.
