Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will understand using simple shapes like circles, triangles, and squares to make animals. These skills will show children how to see an animal and begin to break the animal into a collection of shapes. This series is about birds. I plan to draw several birds during class with the students live. By the end of the class learner will be able to draw birds on their own, and gain a new way of drawing, which will stay with them for years. By continuing in this class for ma
I have been a life long creator with the special emphasis on drawing. This class has the raw and valuable fundaments to teach how to think and express in shapes and forms. These fundamental skills are very transferable into other ways of creating. I teach the same method of drawing as I learned at about the age of 7 years old. When I went to study art for my BA and MA I still used the fundamentals which I shall be teaching: how to see simple shapes in complex animals. Knowing how to see these forms allows to re-build them as art.
None assigned, but I would love to see any drawings done between classes by the students. They could hold them up to the camera  for any one to see.
My teaching will be focused on using regular pencils for all drawing. I will allow other media as well for coloring the drawings. Students will need several pencils, a couple of erasers, and at least 8 sheets of paper. A child safe pencil sharpener would be great. Extra supplies which are helpful: a ruler, pencil sharpener. extra pencils and extra erasers. Other art supplies for coloring are great like color pencils and crayons. Paint is fine for use in the class, but parents should put down extra protective material like card board or a drop cloth to protect floors, carpet, and furniture. Older clothes being worn by the children might be best too.
Assessment are as students wish to share. Because I have taught some college and university classes and I have a BA in fine art from Wingate College, Wingate NC. and a Masters Degree in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah GA, I can give a letter grade to any students who take my class. If students are taking my classes as part of home schooling or some other appropriate official schooling, I may be able to offer a credited letter grade for students for any art classes. Please contact me on us trying to work through gaining official accreditation through your child's school. 
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
