Class Experience

Our Learning Goals:
1) To provide a fun, engaging, dynamic community of budding artists to sketch, learn, connect & make friends.
2) Help students develop a great sketchbook - as a integral part of a design portfolio.

Students will learn to develop core skillsets that'll enable them to effectively study and sketch plants, nature and weathered man-made objects or places
With over 12 years of experience as a concept artist, I provide a kind of dynamic, fun and "hands-on" type of teaching environment that drives engagement and inspires aspiring young artists.

My rigorous, highly experienced design education & background (Art Center College of Design PROD 02, professional concept artist in the themed entertainment industry) helps me bring to my students an "up-to-date", "real-world" based experience - one that's infused with a lot of humor, hard work work, industry insights and life experiences. 

My classes goes way beyond merely learning art. It is designed to inspire and equip the next-gen creative leader within every child and youth.
During some weeks, Mr. D may assign practice work or 1-page sketching assignments - to encourage them to sketch & observe real plants & nature around their own home, or (when safe to do so) outdoors. Those who cannot step out to sketch can use computer images for reference.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students' progress will be assessed by the progress - both in quantity and in quality - they make on their sketchbook. Students' sketchbooks should have a gradually increasing collection of sketches, class notes and texture libraries.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This club may lightly touch on studying the textures and structures of historical, weather-worn, antique objects, weapons, vehicles, or environments like abandoned buildings. We will only focus on sketching the design and texture aspects such objects or environments. No blood and gore will be allowed.
We may use Google Sheets and Slides to help us build libraries of image references.

About Me

If you're reading this, then the chances are that you, like myself, feel that their teachers in public school settings often underestimate today's kids.
