At SBAD, we believe young children have the advantage when it comes to art. They respond with absolute honesty and have no preconceptions about what things “should” look like. That’s why so many artists including Matisse, Miro, Klee and Picasso looked to children’s art for inspiration.

In the st•ART program, we embrace this innocence, encouraging children to try different materials, techniques and mediums to find their own way, helping to build confidence and independence. All while having fun!

All great comics have two things in common: a unique character and a memorable story. That’s why all of our cartooning/manga classes start with character design and evolve into visual storytelling and rendering.

Classes topics include: building character from shapes, portraying personality through action line, conveying emotion, building a plot, as well as working with a wide variety of materials and techniques.

At SBAD, we believe young children have the advantage when it comes to art. They respond with absolute honesty and have no preconceptions about what things “should” look like. That’s why so many artists including Matisse, Miro, Klee and Picasso looked to children’s art for inspiration.

In the st•ART program, we embrace this innocence, encouraging children to try different materials, techniques and mediums to find their own way, helping to build confidence and independence. All while having fun!
