Gary Harbo's Motivational Session 2
Advanced Art Lesson: Three Dimensional Book Illustration

Click to see Gary in action

Purpose: Build on the first art lesson and continue to develop additional skills
The first art lesson (see Session #1) provides students with skills required to create their own cartoon characters. This lesson will build on that foundation by exploring techniques for creating three-dimensional bodies for characters, as well as motion, color and background.

Program: Demonstration of the tools required for a successful book illustration

This presentation includes the step-by-step process involved in creating a successful book illustration. Each child will participate in a 55-minute advanced art lesson where they will create a design for their character's three-dimensional body, add a face to their body, learn techniques for clothing, learn how to make a background and how to add motion and appropriate color to their drawing.

Cost: $500 per day (maximum of 4 presentations per day) plus 50 cents per mile
