Sample Programs Offered

Program Title: Story Illustration with Mr. Ollie

Program Type: Arts Curriculum

Program Description:

This program combines the words with the illustrations. Mr. Ollie will demonstrate, and have the students participate, with real world techniques and applications of how illustrators create their drawings to marry them with the text. Students will learn that the writing process is just like the drawing: brainstorming, rough drafts, revising, publishing draft, etc. These steps will show the students how to construct the drawings, but also how to arrange an illustration, much how story books and magazine illustrations are done.

Program Title: Cartooning With Mr. Ollie

Program Type: Arts Integration, Arts Appreciation

Program Description:

First of all, this is NOT a class on drawing famous cartoon characters. Basically, this is a drawing class with art and drawing fundamentals. The word “cartooning” just makes this program more understandable for students and teachers. For instance, instead of drawing a REAL duck, we will draw it as a cartoon. This program will stress how art of all kinds ties in to the school lessons. From math, geometry, literary, language arts, art, history and we’ll draw our subjects based on the basic shapes. This program stresses creativity and imagination. See program guide for more details.
