This exciting studio session with printmaker and book artist Dave DiMarchi will help you to create personalized books, ‘zines and posters while exploring illustration and design. Unlike fine art, illustration requires legibility – no matter the artistic style. In this session, students will learn how to reach their audience by creating a clear focus in their work. They will study successful illustrators and comic book artists from N.C. Wyeth to Bill Watterson. In-class illustration assignments will be fun and encourage individual creativity. You will also be introduced to printmaking techniques like silkscreen and relief printing, while learning stencil making and typography—all towards creating illustrated stories in fun, personal and unique ways.
