Class Experience

Beginner Level
Students will practice using simplification to draw proportionate, realistic figures, adding clothing or costumes, and drawing backgrounds. My goal is to give young artists a solid foundation in realistic drawing, which they can build on as they get older and continue to practice!
I've been teaching realistic drawing for over fifteen years!  I have two degrees in art education, and many years of practice.  My goal has always been to help students practice the skills they need so they can draw anything they want.  The classes I make are inspired by the things I wished I could draw when I was (much, much) younger.  
All you'll need for this class is paper, pencil, and an eraser!  
Drawing in a sketchbook or on a digital tablet would also be fine for this class.  

Students may choose to finish their work in color media if they feel so inspired:
- colored pencils
- watercolor paints
- markers
- crayons
- another medium of your preference!
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will sometimes draw people of different body types and physical abilities.  Students will be encouraged and expected to treat all people with respect, both in their drawings and with their words.
