Drawing with Octavio


Are you a fan of comics, manga, or graphic novels? Do you like to draw cartoon characters? Are you a beginner who wants to develop drawing skills? This class offers a focused study of line art technique with an emphasis on personal themes and styles. Students will explore the fundamentals of drawing for character design using traditional techniques in our study of line, shape, form and value. We’ll apply these elements in the study of anatomy learning about natural and exaggerated proportions of the head and body, exploring facial expressions, emotion, gesture, movement and perspective. 

Materials needed: a 2B drawing pencil, a red and or blue pencil, a sketchbook and or lots of drawing paper! 

Octavio Hernandez has taught at several schools in the East Bay including Malcolm X Elementary and Roses in Concrete for over 15 years.  He is an innovative arts-educator and youth advocate who uses the arts to foster the expression of intelligent, articulate, mindful visionaries.
