Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this illustration class:

Storyboarding is the practice of how stories are visualized from moment to moment within the visual language. In our course we will look at essential drawing exercises to help us construct a dynamic narrative; learn how to choose elements to economically tell your story in summary without all of its parts, how to draw panel to panel and show an escalated emotional change between characters to develop your story further along.

The key to storyboarding is the practice and understanding of how moving productions work and storytelling is excavated, looking at graphic novels, movies, TV series, or commercials for examples, we will study scenes and draw them out. Look how camera angles help to tell a story and how they are cut up to aid the story.  At the end of the course, our instructor will provide professional feedback and critique  for your onward journey into this exciting process.

What you will learn:

  • The course will begin exploring basic storytelling: pacing, page flow, composition, and angles: How to make a single illustration based on a favorite song, movie poster, or book.
  • How to choose the elements to economically tell your story in summary without all of its parts
  • How to use unconventional shapes and manipulate anatomy and facial features to tell your story and lead the eye through a piece. Students will design their own characters, and an environment for the story to play.
  • How to employ tension and build suspense to convey emotion in a narrative. Using the medium itself as a storytelling tool (artistic changes to panel border, page layout, etc.) pacing, and framing. Students will design sample pages of an escalated emotional change between characters in their story - for example, a fight scene, a romantic interlude, etc.
  • Exercises on how to draw from a professional script with the subject of your choice. And how to draw panel-to-panel illustrations.
  • How to categorize information, sort by importance, and turn information into a layout.
  • Your instructor will provide sample scripts but students can work from their own scripts/prompts/ poetry and will be asked to write a sample script (1-2 pages) to draw from to better understand the storytelling process

What To Bring

  • All paper and the use of pencils and pens will be provided.
  • We do recommend bringing your own personal notebook so you can practice at home and journal your progress.


Single Classes do not substitute for full class course curriculum, they serve as a taster to our course. Please manage your expectations.

If you are serious about learning this craft, we recommend signing up for a full course or a minimum of 6 classes. Art takes time and practice, students benefit and see real progress from a full course.

In the case that you have signed up for a full class course, after your first class, if you are dissatisfied with the quality of the program or feel it is not right for you, we will do our best to reschedule you into another class that is more suitable for your goals. If that is not suitable we will also offer the option to gift you the remaining credit in the form of a Gift Certificate to a friend who might enjoy the creative experience instead. Please note, the admin processing fee ($75) is deducted as well as any classes already taken from the total fee paid.

We do NOT offer refunds on single-day class or camp enrollments.

Credits

If you pull out of your class before it starts and request a credit instead of any rescheduling option. A credit will be issued that is valid for 6 months from the date of your original enrollment.

The value of the credit will be for the balance of any remaining sessions (if any) with an additional deduction of a $75 registration fee.

Requests to pull out of your enrolled class and turn your enrollment into a credit must be received via email 3 business days prior to the class start date.

If you do not notify us within that time period, you will not be eligible to any class credit or rescheduling opportunities.

Credits are valid for six months form original date of issue and are null and void after that time.

Class Course Cancellations by the school

Although class course cancellations are extremely rare, we reserve the right to cancel classes and make every effort to notify students in advance of these changes.

If enrollment goals are not met for the course we reserve the right to cancel a session up to 48 hours prior to the class. We will notify you via email to reschedule the class to an alternative upcoming date or give you the option to transfer into another class. Or we can offer you a class credit which can be used within a six-month period.

On occasion, a course start date may be pushed back if enrollment goals are not met. In this instance, you will receive a credit for the price of the class that did not take place.

In the event of a total class cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances, and if a student is unable to switch into another class offering, a full refund will be granted.

In the event of severe weather conditions, we will follow the NYC public school closing, and classes will be rescheduled.

Class Course Cancellations "Beyond our Control"

During the ongoing crisis, if an in-person class or any live activity or program is canceled before or during the course due to current situations beyond our control, for example: more severe restrictions by the government + further lockdowns and/or where it is not possible for the school to continue to offer live programming our contingency plan is:

  • Classes will continue as usual but will be offered ONLINE until after restrictions are lifted.
  • Anyone who is registered in a class will be issued a Zoom Link to join.
  • We will not be issuing any credits. If you do NOT wish to attend an ONLINE program, we will offer the option to transfer your current enrollment over to a friend, this will not be in the form of a direct enrollment into the current online program.
  • If the class you are signed up for is cheaper online, the balance will be used toward admin processing. No balance refunds will be offered.
  • If these terms seem strict to you, we understand, but having barely survived the first lockdown, our studio had to re think our policies in order to stay open and keep offering the programs we offer. It is simply not possible for us to be more lenient in the event of lockdowns.
  • If you are not in agreement with these policies we recommend signing up for single day options where possible, in the event that class courses transfer to online experiences.

Cancellation or Rescheduling Requests for ONLINE Group Classes

We are not in a position to offer any make-ups or rescheduling in our Zoom classes.

The instructors are professional and booked in advance and cannot be canceled last minute.

In the circumstance that you are canceling your full enrollment in an Online course, you must give us at least 6 business days notice via email. You will be issued with a credit with an admin processing fee of $75 per enrollment/ per person.

We are sorry if these policies seem strict but we simply cannot run our programs to suit everyone’s personal schedule or last-minute changes in calendars.

Rescheduling Tickets for Single Classes

Due to COVID-19 high cancellation rates and unpredictability, spots in our classes are limited and teachers are booked in advance, so as a small business it is simply not possible for us to deal with last-minute drop outs. We are unable to run our classes according to last-minute changes to student’s personal schedules.

The school is now making it easier to reschedule classes. rescheduling tickets can be purchased 2 business days prior to your enrolled class for a fee of $25 (per single class per person.)

Rescheduling Tickets are VALID for regular group classes in: Adult, Kids or Teen Programs.

Rescheduling Tickets are NOT valid for Toddler Classes, Online Classes, Camps, Private lessons or any other event or activity at our studio.

Rescheduling Tickets must be purchased at least 2 business days in advance of your enrolled class. Please note if a rescheduling ticket is not purchased in time, you will be charged for your session regardless of your non-attendance.

Rescheduling Tickets are NOT VALID for the rescheduling of a full class course, or cancellation of full class courses please read on for cancellation Policies.

The rescheduling of classes is subject to availability in our other classes. In the event your request is NOT available we will contact you by email with an alternative option.

Rescheduling will NEVER carry over into a new semester, so please do NOT email us after your class course is over and ask to reschedule missed classes into new semesters!

Rescheduling requests made verbally to an instructor, or by last-minute phone call or text to any member of our staff, will NOT be deemed valid notifications of cancellations or requests for rescheduling & are NOT eligible for rescheduling, credits, or refunds.

We will issue you with a credit valid for 6 months that can be used toward any of our programs within this period. You will be charged $75 ADMIN FEE for the cancellation and this will be deducted form your credit.

If you do not email us prior to class start time, you will be charged for your classes regardless of your non attendance.

Cancellation or Rescheduling Requests for Camps

Our camps book weeks in advance so we are not in a position to offer any refunds or credits.
