Junior Creature Design and Sculpting

Creature designers have the exciting opportunity to create characters whose body type, elements and props contribute to the overall feel of a creature. This course teaches students how to design creatures, from the initial concept stage all the way to the modeling of a maquette (a small sculpture of a character). Throughout this process, students will examine how design elements influence the nature of their creature and how they may create creatures that range from cute to monstrous. Students will learn the history of creature design, the creature design process, basic anatomy and figure drawing concepts, while sculpting, drawing, and painting creatures.

All materials and books will be included in the additional course materials fee ($75), which is due upon registration, along with the $195 deposit.


This course is open to students in Grades 4 through 7. There are no academic prerequisites for this course.
