Class Experience

Students will learn how to hold a pencil for different stages of drawing.  They will learn the difference between different pencils and techniques for sketching and shading.  We will discuss the different elements of design such as (line, shape, color, value, form, texture, and space).  Other art terminology (focal point, hierarchy, contrast, etc.) will be used as we discuss each piece.  Learners will be encouraged to sign their artwork in a way that honors and completes their work.

Weekly themes are subject to change due to students' interests/needs.
Every four months the schedule repeats.
No homework is assigned but artwork may need to be finished outside of class.  I can post the photo we reference after each class so that students may use it as long as needed. 
Pencils, erasers and paper. :) It is preferable to have art pencils, which have different H and B values, but normal school pencils will work just fine. I highly recommend a kneaded eraser because there are no "eraser crumbs" to wipe off the page and therefore, less smudging. It is also used to make different textures and shading. I use regular computer paper or a sketchbook.
Each learner is given feedback during class.  If desired, learners can also submit their artwork after class for additional feedback.  :)
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
