Tuesday 5:00pm Drawing/ Cartoon Classes – These classes are designed to introduce mini-artists to a broad range of cartooning techniques, including manga, chiibi, kawaii, ghibli, traditional cartooning, and illustration techniques. Each week will focus on a different concept, analysing the differences and similarities between the different styles of drawing.

Saturday 2:00pm Manga Classes  – With a focus on sketching, full body proportioning, facial expressions and creating movement in drawings, mini-artists will develop their sketching skills with Manga style techniques and various drawing exercises. Classes will be limited to 8 students per session to allow GillyAfterDark to give each student one on one attention so your mini-artist will get the most out of their session.

Thursday 5:00pm and Saturday 12:30pm advanced drawing skills classes are designed for students who have already developed their core skills in drawing and want to improve their technical drawing skills. Each term includes activities designed to improve hand eye co-ordination, confidence, muscle memory and skills in perspective and proportioning. Saturday and Thursday classes have different teachers and therefore focus on slightly different elements. 

Thursday classes focus on realistic classical subjects such as landscapes, human and animal figures, details such as hands, feet and those trickier details of anatomy, developing techniques such as quick draw for concept drawings, techniques for proportioning and techniques to create different textures/effects. Thursday classes will use a range of drawing media including graphite, pastels, fineliners and highlighters. 

Saturday classes focus around fantasy and mythical subjects, and includes techniques such as proportioning mythical beasts, landscapes, bug and reptile elements, creating balance and realism in fantasy artworks. Saturday classes will have a fine focus on colour pencil and graphite, and creating realistic light and texture effects using colour pencils. 

 

Please note that a finished graphite drawing can take hours (sometimes up to 10-15 hours) to complete, as such, our lessons will help students develop their skills and practice techniques to allow them to more confidently draw and create finished pieces at home. Feedback from students have shown it is more valuable to practice a wide variety of skill over finishing a drawing therefore students may not create complete drawings during lesson time.
