Drawing Art is regarded as the foundation of all creative visual disciplines. It also plays an important role in the development of creative observation abilities. Drawing Art is aimed at people who want to develop their drawing skills. In this short course, the participant is introduced to various drawing techniques with an emphasis on perceptual accuracy, the exploration of expressive line use, shading techniques as well as tonal values. This short course consists of two consecutive modules, i.e. Module 1: Techniques and Perspectives in Drawing Art, and Module 2: Life Drawing. The latter involves the drawing of live models in our art studio.

Character Development for Graphic Novels is aimed at those who are interested in developing their own graphic novels or comics. The aim of this short course is not to develop a graphic novel during its timespan, but rather to teach participants how to prepare for such a project and how to use visual storyboards to their advantage. This short course also presents a concise background to graphic novels as an interdisciplinary and popular literary and art genre while the practical emphasis resides with how to develop knowledge about the genre towards the development graphic characters that are unique, figuratively recognisable in various body positions, and capable of expressing various emotions.

The initial course materials are included in the course fee and will be presented to participants at the first contact session.
