Class Experience

Students will practice drawing animals, using their skills of observation, and creating backgrounds that illustrate depth (three-dimensional space).  We will build skills needed to draw realistically using reference images.
I have taught drawing for many years, and in my observation the most effective way to teach good drawing skills is to demonstrate them!  Drawing together with my students is a great way to illustrate drawing techniques while also helping them to build the critical thinking and observational skills they need to continue working on their own.  
My goal is to build my students' skills and confidence as young artists!
