More on the Comic Book Illustration Summer Course at CCAD
Dear Joe,Hi Keith,
Thanks for enjoying my Comics 101 articles. Unfortunately, I don't believe there are any plans at present for an online Comic Book Illustration Course at CCAD though I definitely wouldn't be opposed to teaching one. I'd love to see the program expand in some way and benefit the many potential students that I meet or hear from interested in the course. I'll 'cc your inquiry to the Co-Chairman of Illustration and VP of the school and maybe they can get back to you on this or fill you on some possible alternatives. Perhaps someone in Admissions can mail you some free overveiw materials on the school and it's courses just in case.
Good luck with your art career and thanks for dropping me a line!
Dear Joe,Hi Rob,
Thanks for dropping me a line and checking out my web site. CCAD offers Summer workshop programs for their younger students along with Saturday art classes throughout the school year that might be ideal for your son. I've passed on your contact info to the other faculty at CCAD who should be able to give you more information and hopefully help get your child enrolled for some classes soon. In the meantime you can check out more info at the official CCAD web site...
Creative Summer Workshops
Saturday Morning Art Classes
I started taking Saturday art classes and Summer workshops back in grade school many years ago at another art college in Indiana which gave me some really great foundation skills for my career today. I'm sure something like this that CCAD offers would put your child on the right track for his talents too.
Good luck and thanks for dropping me a line!
Thanks for dropping me a line and taking interest in my Comic Book Illustration course at CCAD for this summer in regards to your son Andy. Actually, this course is designed for students who are enrolled in the college and have taken the proper prerequisites at the school already.
There are some Summer workshop drawing class programs offered at CCAD that Andy would eligible for though as a high school student but currently there is no Comic Book Illustration workshop being offered for his level, though there is one in the works for this Fall.
The Comics 101 feature you saw on my web site is actually a weekly tutorial column that I write for World Famous Comics.com. The article is also re-posted at my official site and sometimes features interviews and behind the scenes looks at my Star Wars and comic book projects along with information and lessons from the Comic Book Illustration course that I teach at CCAD.
I'll forward your inquiry to some of the faculty at the school who would hopefully get back to you soon and be able to give you more information on the Summer workshops. Also, for more information you can call the Continuing Education Office at 614.222.3248
I wish Andy the best of luck with his art and hopefully someone at the school will get in touch with you. Thanks for checking out my web site and let me know if you have any more questions.
