Description

Class Experience

Students will learn to draw comics with editing in mind, to photograph their work, and to use Canva as a layout tool.
As a teacher with a Masters in Art Education, I taught 6 sections of Computer Technology in Art Education to 2nd year college students. I also used to teach Computer Art 1, 2, and 3 in a public high school.
Students may need to spend time drawing their comic pages or loading their camera's photos to Canva outside of classtime. 
Phone or ipad with camera - a separate device is preferred. Please set up your devices so that both have access to Outschool, zoom, and canva so students can screenshare and work from both. Create a Canva.com account and make sure your learner can log in. Ipads & phones may install an app; laptops can access the same via canva.com without any installation. Drawing or printer paper Drawing pencils Eraser Markers, colored pencils, crayons optional
All students will be asked to periodically screenshare their work as a progress report so the teacher can provide assistance. Final comics may be shared in the Outschool classroom.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
TECHNOLOGICAL REQUIREMENTS:

* Canva will be used during this class. This is a simple online graphic design app which will enable comic students to create new, neat layouts for their comics and type text into word bubbles. Parents will need to help their students create an account with Canva.com before the second class and, if using an ipad or phone for taking photos, install Canva app on the device.

* A second device to take photos of comic pages. A phone or ipad with Canva installed will work.

NOTE:
While parents are asked to stay off camera as much as possible, students may need technological assistance throughout the course depending on their age, ability, and experience. Please make yourself available, particularly to younger learners, who may need extra support during and after class.
