Description

Class Experience

Students will learn drawing skills and a chance to present their art in a supportive and positive learning environment. Students will expand their sense of self-expression, confidence and love of drawing. They will learn many different creative ideas to spark new drawing experiences, and will create a journal of their drawings. 

Week One: We'll read "Beautiful Oops" by Barney Saltzberg and explore some art ideas inspired by this book. We'll do some improvisational drawing prompts that help us warm up and feel comfortable drawing and making art. We'll make a journal for the class to use each week. 

Week Two: We'll learn about blind contour drawing inspired by the book "Drawing on The Right Side of The Brain" by Betty Edwards, and we'll do a few improvisational drawing exercises and games. Watercolors will be used in this class.

Week Three: We'll explore a few "draw from your imagination" prompts inspired by The Anti-Coloring Book first published in the late 70s. We'll also attempt to draw feelings and play a few drawing games. We'll incorporate watercolors in this class.

Week Four: We'll explore some elements of Art History's Surrealist Movement, a 20th-century avant-garde movement in art and literature, which sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind. We'll also draw in unique ways with our body, and do some "impossible drawing" exercises.  

Week Five: We'll have some student-led drawing games and exercises, explore more imagination drawings inspired by The Anti-Coloring Book, participate in a few step-by-step drawings, and we'll draw a collaborative scene together influenced by The Surrealist Drawing Movement.
I run a mobile art lab and teach children art in a variety of places. When I teach summer camps, I always incorporate a chance for drawing games and art challenges, and this is often the most-loved moment in the day for some children. I aim to create a supportive and fun learning environment for kids to feel comfortable to create. 
I'll challenge them to try out one drawing prompt on their own during the week. This is not at all required but just an opportunity to encourage them to draw in their journal on their own. 
Supply List: Each week, I'll post the supply list for the week. Sometimes, I'll also post a few sheets to print out that we'll use during class. If you don't have a printer, it's still possible to do the class without the print out. Class One: 20 sheets of paper, scissors, crayons and markers, a pencil, a piece of newspaper, watercolor set, water jar, paint brush and dab cloth or paper towel, a few small toys or toy pieces and coins you can trace. Class Two: 5 sheets of paper, scissors, crayons and markers, a pencil, watercolor set with paint brush, water jar and dab cloth or paper towel, an interesting piece of nature like a flower or a leaf or pine cone or shell or even a piece of kale from your refrigerator. Optional: dice Class Three: 5 sheets of paper, scissors, two pencils, crayons and markers, a paper plate or thick piece of paper or cardboard piece the size of a plate, watercolor set, paintbrush, water jar and dab cloth or paper towel. Class Four: 10 sheets of paper, scissors, crayons and markers, pencil, a paper plate or a thick piece of paper or piece of cardboard the size of a paper plate. Class Five: 10 sheets of paper, scissors, crayons and markers, and a pencil. Optional: dice
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
