Graphic Illustration Class at Red Bow

Hello all!  I'm excited to offer a new class at Red Bow Studio for grades 4th-10th.
March 12 thru May 14
Saturdays 10am-11:30am 
10 Classes $300 (includes all materials)
Does your child dream of drawing?  Do they have books filled with comic book characters
they would like to bring to life?  If so, Graphic Illustration at Red Bow Studio is the class
for them.  The instructor, Fran Traina, will focus on the fundamentals of composition, color
and media application in graphic illustration.  She will also review the basic principles of
one-, two-, and three-point perspective, a necessity in animation and cartooning. 

Fran Traina
Fran Traina is an artist who works in many different mediums, her favorite being
pen & ink and watercolor.  She has degrees in both Fine Arts and Graphic Design. 
Fran takes a sketchbook wherever she goes, and she loves to draw everything from
everyday objects to lovely foreign cities.  Recently she has filled her sketchbook with
a bouquet from her church, her son’s Nerf water gun, her broken vacuum, and her
adorable dog, Einstein, pictured above.  Please join Fran as she teaches the many
different aspects of graphic illustration in her debut class at Red Bow Studio.

If you have any questions or would like to enroll in the class, please
email theredbowstudio at gmail dot com or call (646) 382-3733.

The Sketchbook Project

Happy New Year to all!!  I have been remiss in my posting on this blog, but I have SO MUCH to post.  First of all, the lovely ladies in our Tuesday Night Art Journaling workshops joined together in the final months of 2010 to fill a journal for the Sketchbook Project.  Here are many of the pages that fill our sketchbook themed "It's Raining Dogs and Cats".
