What does your story world look like? Who lives there and what do they do all day? Is this place a medieval kingdom, a fantastical forest, a city of the future, a desert outpost or something completely different? What materials exist there and what will your characters make out of these materials? What do your characters want? In this course each student will develop a short paragraph describing a specific fantasy place and then use this brief to design a prop that belongs to their imagined world. We will develop the story world’s visual language to design and paint the prop using specific shape language, silhouette, emotional tone, color palette, and material textures.

This is a credit-bearing class and grades will be given. This class is for high school students in grades 9-12. Please check the supply list tab for materials needed to complete this class.
