April Workshop & Exhibits - Stranger Factory

Stranger Factory is presenting another fine art workshop in the month of April, taught by internationally recognized fine artists and character designers, Brandt Peters & Kathie Olivas. 

THE FINE ART OF CHARACTER DESIGN is a beginner's class based on ideas and tips for building and designing effective, expressive and memorable character designs. We will be focusing on specific fundamental processes and theories, such as R&D (research & development), visual impact, shape breakdowns, defining styles, character story, color theory, space and volume, and caricature. We will also be discussing creating character turnarounds, conveying personality and finally - polish and presentation.

The class will be two and a half hours long with an additional hour held over for Peters and Olivas to review and critique your in-class drawings and designs.

Only 20 spots are available for this unique workshop and will be just one in a series of planned character design workshops from Peters and Olivas (together and individually).

Date: 4/7/13 (Sunday) / 2 - 4 PM (review and critique until 5pm)


DURATION: 2 1/2 hours (+ 1 hour for critique and review)


SUPPLIES:  Students should bring their own sketchbooks and/or notepads, and personal drawing tools. Stranger Factory will also have newsprint sketchbooks and drawing supply sets on hand… Please let the staff know in advance if you will need supplies.
