Extra Ed's NEW Online Visual Arts programs inspire and teach students how to draw, paint, and put a graphic novel together.

Our creative instructors use the latest graphics software to teach classic drawing techniques with modern twists, guiding students in the development and evolution of their own art forms across a variety of digital platforms.

For our Arts inspired Extra Ed’ers we offer 2 programs:

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

Digital Art

Get ready to draw, animate, and design while learning art theory and technique using the latest digital technology!  Students design characters, create abstracts, animations, and collages, and learn about colour and context as they share and talk about their art with their instructors and peers. Students advance to the next Level when they complete the previous course Level, moving from basic to more advanced skills and techniques.

Comic Book/Graphic Novel Creation

Congratulations, you’re going to publish your first book! In this program, our instructors teach you how to create a full graphic novel. Using both paper and digital techniques, students learn to draw facial expressions, demonstrate body language, draw creatures, and illustrate backgrounds. Stories are posted on storyboards where students learn to organize story ideas through frames, expressing their creativity through words and images. Students advance to the next Level when they complete the previous course Level, moving from basic to more advanced skills and techniques.
