You’ll spend time with pets brought into the studio (including your own), taking a moment to sketch these furry and feathered friends in person, capturing their expressions and funny antics.

Video Games & Urban Art

HUGE hit last summer, so we are brining it back! Cordovan Art School is merging the ART behind the creation of video games together with end-user application. First, you will learn SWEET drawing skills...Next, you will make original, hand-designed art projects based on your favorite video games...and you will still have time to do a 3-D conceptual sculpture of your favorite character. With all the art-making, how do we find time to hold a video game player's tournament (Mario Kart, Smash Bro's, or Just Dance)? We aren't quite sure, but come test your mad-skills and see for yourself! One lucky artist will be crowned the video game champion of the week.

We'll step into a world of imagination. Expected to sell out, so sign up early.
