Comics with Mercedes
This class is an introduction to the comic book genre of art! We will be learning how to make comics, how to distinguish adaptations and inspirations, the different styles of comics, and many more topics of discussion.
Mercedes Petrilla is a Mexican American who was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Her interest in art came from her rare trips out of Alaska to California and Texas on vacations. She was inspired and fell in love with the color and fluidity used in graffiti that she saw in her travels, the line and shape usage in caricature artists on the street, and the fun characters she saw in Disneyland. Along the way, she worked in a local screen-printing shop (Hulin Alaskan Design), designed a bench for the Anchorage Park Foundation while working with Bettisworth North Architects and Planners, and had work featured in the Anchorage School District’s Education Center. In 2020, Mercedes jumped from Las Vegas, Nevada to Albuquerque, New Mexico and continues to strive for her goals in life and art.
Choir with Xavi
This class is an introduction to vocal singing and students will learn folk songs which will be recorded for the end of semester showcase. Students are required to wear face shields in addition to face masks and this class will be taught outdoors on the back porch. Students may work on art or study if they do not want to participate in singing at this time.
