Class Experience

In this five-session class, students will learn insect anatomy, understand the role some insects have in the ecosystem, and draw and color those insects 
As a licensed art teacher, I have developed techniques for breaking down drawing lessons into simple, easy-to-follow steps. Once we get the basics done, I give my students freedom to complete their project using their own imagination, thereby giving them the opportunity to take what I have taught them to a different, fun and creative level. In this particular class, I draw on my experience teaching kids and adults at the Butterfly Pavilion, the first ADA-accredited stand-alone insect zoo in the US!
Homework might include finishing up artwork that was not finished in class, and possibly image searches of the above insects for inspiration.
Students will need:
pencil, eraser, pencil sharpener
black sharpie for outlining
crayons, colored pencils, markers, etc. (student choice; I will be using colored pencils)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
4 hours 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
