ART  EDUCATION

Level Up Your Art Game

Updated: December 1, 2022

Registration is now open for Illustrative Voices’ (IV) 2022 art classes, lectures, and workshops! We are stoked to be kickstarting our art education programs offering both onsite and virtual.

We are excited to introduce our Fundamentals of Illustration, Color & Design, Cartoons & Comics for Illustration, and Fundamentals of Art, which foster skills such as color unity and harmony, cultural and individual awareness of color symbolism, and composition, as well as creating characters with personality, an awareness of the representation of diverse body shapes, proportions and sizes, and visual storytelling. Currently, classes are for teens and adults only with children classes coming soon!

 

Private art lessons offer high-quality instruction with our amazing art faculty. Classes January 2022, but you can start at any time and tuition will be prorated. To join our interest list, go to our private lesson page

 

As an art organization serving artists of all ages, IV will continue to require masks for everyone on-site this summer and fall, including staff, faculty and members. Thank you for doing your part to keep IV and our artist community safe!
