Young Adult Communicable Disease Management Plan

REGISTER FOR WINTER YOUNG ADULT CLASSES (11-16)

You can register for classes online or over the phone, call Amber at 541-345-1571, or
email education@mkartcenter.org for more information.

With the current restrictions that are put in place for Lane County, MKAC is still able to host classes based on exemptions for Youth programs and following the outline for Higher Education. We have worked diligently to create a schedule that can ensure the comfort and safety of all involved so we can continue to do what we love most, giving the community the opportunity to enjoy art.

We have made changes to our Education Program for this upcoming term by limiting our class sizes to a maximum of 6 students for our Adult classes*, 8 students for our Young Adults, and 10 students for our Youth programs.

To look toward the beginning of the Winter Term as best as we can, we will be asking students enrolling in classes to make a deposit of 50% of tuition and applicable fees at the time of registration, with remaining tuition due one week (7 days) prior to first class date. This will allow us to be flexible with the start date of the term if we are required to make changes as necessary, and change pricing of classes to reflect this. Students will be notified through email about any scheduling changes, class confirmations, and with final payment information.

Tuition and fees for workshops will be paid in full at the time of registration.

*In the event of lighter restrictions for the county, Adult class sizes will open to a maximum enrollment of 8 students.

YOUNG ADULT WORKSHOPS

Comic Illustration - 4 Panel
Taro Baugnon

Saturday, 1-4pm
February 20

In this workshop, we will learn the process of making four-panel comics, from idea generation to a finished piece. Students will learn thumbnailing, how to frame panels and basic character structure. Designing the panel, we will look at examples from movies and TV shows to see how creators tell stories visually. We can think of comics as a combination of drawing and creative writing – students can draw material from their own experience, or a Mood Board (a collection of influences, favorite work, or genres). There is a story-generating technique used in Improv Theater called “yes-and” which translates well to comics – it also helps foster a friendly/open state of mind that’s important for the creative process.

Members $35 ~ Non-Members $50

Animal Character Creation
Taro Baugnon

Saturday, 1-4pm
March 6

In Animal Character Illustration, we will focus on creating a single image that expresses personality and suggests a story. Students will learn to anthropomorphize an animal of their choice, giving it the personality traits of people. This is mostly done through facial expression, posture, clothes, and props. We will talk about color schemes: it often works well to limit colors to a few and choose one dominant color. Then, the shapes used to construct the character and scene will establish mood and tone. Circles, squares, triangles each communicate a “shape language” that influences how the viewer sees the illustration. Finally, we will discuss some tips for using watercolor to achieve the best results.

Members $35 ~ Non-Members $50
