CLASSES GOING ON NOW.


MentorWings Summer Art Classes was created for students who either have an interest in art, a passion for drawing/animation/video games/comic books/design or envision a career as an artist.

These are not art and craft classes but classes taught by professionals with over 20 years each in Film/TV Animation, Video Games, Comics, Toy Design, Illustration and more.

We will be taking an apprenticeship approach to these classes so whatever level the student is, they should be able to grow in their craft.

Our approach is very much how we would train an Artist on the job. We have the student draw what interest them, we evaluate their work and give them a path to follow to improve their work.
