No prior knowledge is required! The art in this class is based on sketches of the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an, China. The students will learn about these statues and their significance as art and artifacts, but they will also learn about the military ranks of that time ( 221-206 BCE) and the features of the Qin Dynasty. Along the way, they will read letters "from" people of that time period (historical and fictional) and express their creativity through a variety of art activities. We will...

Each learner will need art supplies like pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, glue, tape, etc. It will also be easier if the illustrations can be printed out prior to each class, although students may colour/edit them using a computer program or redraw them on paper. I will supply the readings and illustrations from my book (a $20 value).
I am able to give feedback and a report on each learner's progress, if requested.
4 hours per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
This class will include an age-appropriate discussion of war and death. Most of the illustrations are of soldiers' faces, but there are a few illustrations of fighting, including two with a wounded or dying soldier (not gory).
