So what is our course about? Our course is about providing essential knowledge of art and illustration. Primarily in the
digital medium using Photoshop CC and Wacom Cintiq graphics tablets.
Currently Studio Fezilla is catering primarily to kids 10 and up, and teenagers. Our course covers the essentials that
a beginner needs, in order to better understand art and illustration. We cover improving drawing techniques,
improving line art, traditional tools practice, inking practice, lessons in important art theory and more.

would like to join.

Course Payment Options:
Full fee: An upfront $500 payment of the full fee at the beginning of the term. We are unable to refund students for classes they miss under the full fee payment option.
Installment: An installment of $250 at the beginning of a term, and a further $250 at the halfway point (Week 5.)We are unable to refund students for classes they miss under the installment payment option.
Week-by-week: Some parents prefer this method for it's flexibility. Students simply pay $55 for the 2 hour weekly classthey attend. This way a student only pays for classes they attend. Some parents prefer this for their child as they maymiss several weeks leaving on a holiday, or may often have other commitments to attend to (sport, social commitments ect.)
Have you got a child that loves to draw, and would like to be part of a group social environment of other kids who share their passion and enthusiasm? Please feel free to head over to out contact page to get in touch.
Term 1 2019 Class Topics & Term Project
Term 1 2019 Project Topic - Character Redesign
Every term the studio has a new project topic. This terms project topic is Character Redesign. The idea behind this topic is for students to select a character of their choosing and redesign the character in a new and different way. An example of this could be taking a fantasy character and redesigning them for a sci-fi setting.
I partake in the project myself in order to help and better guide my students in their methods and decision making. Our classes are conducted in two halves. The first hour is focused on the topic of the week. This topic can range from improving specific drawing techniques, experimenting with diffirent mediums, engaging in a creative drawing activities, spending extra time on our term projects and so on. The second hour of class is focused on the terms project (mentioned above.)
I favour adaptability in the way I operate my classes. If I find the classes I have set for a term are not engaging students in a satisfactory way, I will make the effort to adjust the terms direction. If I make a decision like this it's made in order to better serve my students and to provide a more engaging experience for them.
Cheers, we're looking forward to a fun and productive term.
