Let’s paint monsters with guest artist Justin Hillgrove!

We’ll design unique creatures, then paint them with acrylic paints. In this 2-part workshop, students will learn some character design principles and become familiar with some of the basic painting techniques used by local artist Justin Hillgrove of Imps and Monsters.

This special workshop will span TWO Saturdays, and is open to youth ages 6-18. All supplies are included.

About the Artist

Justin Hillgrove is a Pacific Northwest artist who loves painting monsters, robots and other such nonsense. Mostly self taught, he spent a decade in the design industry before setting out on his own to spend his days painting. In the last 15 years, Justin has worked on everything from comics and toys, to tabletop games and children’s books, though he is most well known for his own original fine art. Some memorable projects have included painting murals for Facebook in Seattle and London, participating in the Schulz Museum’s artist-in-residence program, and creating covers for Boom Studios / Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time comic.
