$165, members $148.50

Artists have used the art of Caricature for centuries to break down barriers between classes.  Today Caricature art can be seen in magazines, on movie posters and in advertisements.  In this 10 week course taught by professional Illustrator and Caricature artist Jason Wilkins, you'll learn how to caricature and apply the artwork in the context of an illustration.

Students will be given a mock illustration commission for a magazine or advertisement and create the piece as though it will be published.  This course is perfect for those young budding artists who are considering illustration as a career and for those who love to draw but aren't quite sure where it's headed just yet. No matter the skill level, we'll be creating art in a fun, creative and safe environment where we can all learn and grow as artists!
