Christian Colbert

Christian Colbert was born, raised, and currently resides in Oberlin, Ohio. Christian primarily works digitally, and with traditional pencil, pen and ink. He’s inspired by the world around him, music, film, television, and pop culture. Christian has been illustrating and designing for nearly two decades, with such professional credits as Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, Christian is most excited about his own intellectual property, “Lantern Falls” being optioned for development as a feature film/television series.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)


**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
