CB Sketchbook Club » Kirk Demarais
Join us for an evening of sketching and discussion with our online creative community! This week’s instructor Kirk Demarais will explore methods of translating a simple story into the comic book format. We’ll look at the way different artistic choices can emphasize various aspects of a narrative such as character, action, world-building, and so on. We will also outline basic visual storytelling techniques that comic creators can utilize to tell their tales most effectively.
Each week, guests will be led through an introductory drawing exercise by a guest artist. Grab your sketchbook or some loose paper and a pencil or pen for this hour long class that offers the chance to relax and connect digitally with friends as you explore the creative practice of sketching. Sketchbooks offer the freedom to experiment with materials, themes, techniques and to record the things that inspire you!
What You’ll Need:
- Sketchbook (or larger paper)
- Pencil sharpener
- Straight edge
- Ink Pen of your choice (optional)
Free. Register online or by calling Guest Services at 479.657.2335 to join via Zoom webinar. Once registered, you’ll receive a link to join the Zoom meeting in your ticket confirmation email.
