I love to draw animals, and I have developed ways to break down the steps to teach kids how to draw animals. I also happen to be married to a "Sharkcyclopedia!" My husband never misses Shark Week, and is incredibly knowledgeable about these amazing predators.  Scientific Illustration is the perfect bridge between art and science!
Homework Offered
Because this class is not live, learning will be asynchronous. All drawings will be due the Monday of the following week. Students will upload their own art the following Monday of each week and provide positive feedback on classmates' drawings. Along with the weekly drawings, ideas for an independent project will be introduced during the first class. This is intended to be fun and not take a lot of time. It will be due during the last week of class.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
