Character design for kids

My Character design class is open to anyone aged 10-14, with or without experience. It’s designed specifically to make character creation accessible and easy to understand, focusing on students’ personal interests and individual creativity. We’ll go over basic design tools like shapes, contrast and personality, in a simple, approachable way, and learn to apply them. By the end, each student will have developed their own personal Mickey Mouse.


Have you ever wanted to design your very own Spongebob, Batman or Super Mario? Good news! In this class you will learn all the basic steps to create and draw your own personal character, and to develop it across different projects.
