Extra Ed’s Online Visual Arts Programs for Adults are designed to provide inspirational instruction, so you learn how to draw, paint, or put a graphic novel together in the most enjoyable way.

Our creative instructors use the latest graphics software to teach classic drawing techniques with modern twists, guiding you through the development and evolution of your own art form across a variety of digital platforms.

  • Digital Art (Level 1, Level 2 Level 3)

    Get ready to draw, animate, and design while learning art theory and technique using the latest digital technology! You will learn how to design characters, create abstracts, animations, and collages, and learn about colour and context. The class is also encouraged to share and talk about their art with the instructor and other class members.

    You will advance to the next Level once the previous course Level is completed, moving from basic to more advanced skills and techniques.

  • Comic Book/Graphic Novel Creation (Level 1, Level 2 Level 3)

    In this program, our instructors teach you how to create a full graphic novel. Using both paper and digital techniques, you will learn to draw facial expressions, demonstrate body language, draw creatures, and illustrate backgrounds. Stories are posted on storyboards where you will learn to organize story ideas through frames and express your creativity through words and images.
