Draw a Cute Chibi Character: Students Pick and Sketch in Anime Chibi Style

Each week, we will learn to draw together and create unique and adorable Chibi characters to fan-inspired art from various anime shows, games, and movies. Each week, we will vote together to make "cute" and sometimes "ugly" characters.

Hey! 
I am Tammy Whelan, and I help my students discover themselves through art!

With over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience and degrees in Psychology, I have created a personalized pedagogical approach to learning for all my students. Being certified and registered as a member of the National Tutoring Association and Yoga Alliance and training in Arts in Health and SEL*F, I am passionate about cultivating a growth mindset that encourages effort and perseverance. 

A Personalized Approach
I run an interactive and collaborative classroom, making it a point to try to adapt to my student's learning style, schedule, and needs. My effort is to ensure that my students have feel good about their efforts at the end of each class. 

I motivate my students to dive deep and enjoy the very process of creating art rather than simply focusing on the end product. My approach to teaching involves believing in the uniqueness of each child and seeking to connect with and draw out that aspect of theirs into their art.
Students may not finish their character in class but are welcome to continue their character after the session is over.
Sketchbook Journal or paper A pencils Stump or Q-tips Eraser
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no grade or judgment in the class. I ask that each student respect each other's time and input. The main objective is the draw until the timer is complete with compassion and without judgment.  

I will give feedback and updates to students and parents periodically throughout the course. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
