Jordan Kincaid is an illustrator from Richmond Virginia. She is very fond of illustrating monsters, maidens, fairytales, and anything girly! Some of her wonderful clients include: Owlcrate, Alchemy and Ink, Witchcrownbox, Booksnleaf, Bucherbuchse, Maverick, McGraw Hill Education, Pearson, Oxford University Press, and Harper
Collins. Growing up Jordan was an artsy and different kid. When teaching, she encourages her students to embrace their differences and express themselves through their work. She takes the verses Psalm 139:13-14 to heart. “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” When she is not illustrating or teaching she spends her spare time with her loving boyfriend and her cat.
GRADE LEVEL: 9th - 12th
Class: Monday 12:30 - 1:30 P.M.
Color theory is the practical understanding of color, how colors interact with each other and how they can be applied. Students will develop a working color vocabulary through a series of various projects that demonstrate many different types of color theory practices Additionally, students will explore the psychological aspects of color, personal preference and historical and symbolic meanings of color. Students will also gain a basic and practical understanding of mixing color, handling paint and their artist materials. Students will learn how to paint using Gouache, mix their own colors for their paintings and learn how to combine them in a harmonious way to create stunning paintings and illustrations.
Grades for projects given will be based off of the student’s work merit in addition to following the instructions given. That said, all students come in at different skill levels, therefore they will also be graded based on their own personal growth and improvement.
Attendance is extremely important for student’s progression as we will go over techniques and work on projects in class. Failure to attend classes on a consistent bases will result in said student falling behind. As we know, life happens sometimes. If an event comes up such as sickness, a family emergency, vacation, or any other event that requires a student’s absence from class, pleasecontact me as I will make sure appropriate make up work will be given.
