Homework Offered
This class really benefits students best when there is a lot of classroom participation. Please help your learner to: 1. Submit a photo of their work weekly, and also photos of other similar work by other artists or actual photos of real subject matter to use as reference material, by Friday if possible. 2. Via a video or written comments, provide an explanation of their work or process. 3. View other's pictures and write comments/kind reactions for learners to see. 4. Respond to other learner's comments and feedback about their own work. 5. On Wednesdays, check for and respond to weekly teacher questions/prompts and read and respond to other learners responses. 6. My Flex classes are very interactive, particularly because students are free to schedule solo or group meeting with me to chat with others or see a live demonstration if they require more assistance.
