Draw Club – Comic Book Art

Wednesday, February 2, 4:00–6:00pm

Hey kids! Let’s draw some comic book art together! Comic books are known for their detailed drawings of superheroes and villains, and they can seem impossible to draw, but using a few simple techniques like skeletons and mannequins, you can get a ton better at drawing them in a really short time. We’ll create a comic book character or two together, working on our proportions and learning about muscles and anatomy... and then you’ll get to use what you learned to create your own comic book superhero or villain! Let’s Draw Some Awesome!

Ages 8 to 16 | Instructor: Wade Gugino

Class Fee: $17 ($15 for LowellArts Members). Fee includes materials
