Is your learner interested in pencil sketching? This class is a basic beginner level weekly drawing class. Students will be inspired by a different drawing each week with a wide variety of subjects to keep them creating weekly. Topics will include but are not limited to landscapes, buildings, nature, flowers, people, animals, food, etc. I will demonstrate step by step, from basic shapes to shading and details. The techniques and skills I aim to cover: perspective, values, smooth tonal...
~Students will explore the elements of art through step by step projects. ~Students will gain exposure to art techniques and vocabulary. ~Students will show their creativity by adding unique details to their artworks. ~This class is for budding artists who know that art isn't about making an exact replica of the teacher's art piece. ~Due to the variety of skill sets in the class, I try to pace the class to meet all students' needs, but this isn't always possible.

40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This is class is direct instruction with some room for free expression. I do not coerce participation in discussions; they can choose to participate as much or as little as they desire. Students are also free to ask questions and make comments at any point. Some of my classes are very talkative and some of my classes are really quiet. It really depends on the dynamic of the group. I also don’t force learners to “follow along”, however, many of my learners appreciate the structure my lessons provide. Ultimately, it’s up to your learner to decide exactly how they want their art to turn out. This class is geared towards beginners, however, intermediate students are welcome!
