Artwork by Matt Tanzi

This is a class for any curious artists who have ever read a book, looked at the drawings, and thought “I want to do that!” In this class we will study how artists work with words and ideas in order to create illustrations. How do we tell a story through pictures? How many different ways can a thought be shown as a drawing? Let’s find out together!
