Description

Class Experience

I hold a Bachelors in Fine Art from Virginia Tech and a Masters in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and am a former public school art teacher. I love teaching drawing, painting, sculpture and Photoshop to learners of all ages. There's a special place in my heart for creative works and the artists that make them, especially fantasy stories and narrative artworks, comics and graphic novels.
Students may choose to spend extra time on their comics outside of class.
Drawing pencils preferred (2B, 4B, 6B, Ebony)
Large eraser (pink, white or fun shapes) and/or Art Gum Eraser (preferred)
White printer paper or drawing paper
Ruler
Colored Pencils, Markers, or Crayons
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Warning: Comic books, especially superhero comics, usually contain violent conflicts, violent images, and weapons. While I discourage my students from creating gore for gore's sake and generally consider guns to be the most boring weapon in a story, my focus in these comics classes is to help students communicate a story that makes sense, not to attempt to remove the violent element from the superhero genre. If you as a parent find violence distasteful or do not wish your child to depict violent images, please discuss this with your learner.
