Lets Make a Map! (Online)

August 2 @ 6:30 pm - August 30 @ 9:00 pm

$125

Stacye Leanza – Tuesdays, Aug 2 – Aug 30, 6:30pm-9:00pm (Online)

 

A special kind of magic happens when you overlay a common map with some imaginative images of what could be going on down there.   

Good illustrated maps tell the story of a place or event in a way that makes people want to visit the destination, & helps them find it, too. 

In class, students will learn techniques to make an inventive map that can do just that. Well cover whats essential for way-finding & what to leave out, and how to create meaningful, expressive icons that will entice viewers. 

Graphics software is recommended, but not required. Class meets on Zoom.

 

Materials 

  • Sketch paper for rough sketches (at least 8.5 x 11”) 
  • Pencils  
  • Kneaded eraser, if possible, or whatever you have 

Very helpful, whether or not you do the Final artwork on the computer 

But NOT required: 

  • A computer / tablet with Wi-Fi  
  • graphics / photo-editing software  
  • Printer 
  • Scanner (Or digital camera, in a pinch)
