This class focuses on students who show a keen interest in digital illustration, comic making, character design and animation. 

Students will be guided through fundamental techniques  traversing both digital and traditional mediums, building up easily translatable skills for creating their desired works.

The class will be structured around these fundamentals as well as allowing plenty of time to accommodate individual student's interests, so please take the below class plan as an outline :)

As the main focus of this class is learning to draw for animated works and creating digital artwork, all students must have their own drawing tablet, stylus, and appropriate software. Students will have the opportunity to create traditionally as well as digitally. Please see the supplies list at the bottom of this page to see what your child will require to participate in lessons.

Students will be immersed in a highly creative and supportive environment with like minded peers.

As a teacher I wish to encourage each individual artist to find joy in their art and to help young people flourish in a diverse and safe social space.

If this class sounds right for you please feel free to enrol below ! However, please be aware that I am only able to take limited numbers of students due to the space and nature of my teaching style. 

If you're not sure if this class is for you, please feel free to send me an email at

maeveocarroll.illustration@gmail.com

I'll happily look over student work and help you find the right class for you.

This classroom will be a safe and welcoming space for neuro-diverse, queer and disabled youth.
