Description

Class Experience

Sketch Club is a place to explore concepting and sharpen drawing skills. Topics we discuss range include such things as sources of inspiration, media formats, drawing tips, resources and managing our habits such as self-critique and goal setting.

The objective of this club is to blend peer-to-peer inspiration with instructor's tips, guidance and resources to create an encouraging and enjoyable club. Practice leads to mastery!
I'm passionate to the core about CREATIVITY, personal expression and the ability to express our thoughts and perspectives in creative ways. As a professional designer, artist and instructor, AND a parent, I feel more motivated than ever to be able to provide my personal resources to others in hopes that I can fill some voids that seem to be disappearing with public education's limited budgets and resources. Art and design skills are very much a part of our modern, marketable job economy, yet we sometimes discount them as a luxury (and trim them from the curriculum of our schools). 

As a professional in the world of marketing, design, and product creation, I assure you that investing in your child's passion for arts and entertainment while providing a creative outlet for expression) is time and money well spent! There are so many paths this can pave for them!

Homework is optional. I may suggest a challenge for them to try for the next meeting but that would be a suggestion and not a requirement. Hopefully learners will be motivated to draw their fantasy creatures as a way to combat stress. There are no deadlines to fulfill with this. Typically, peer camaraderie is likely to incentivize learners to make progress on their creative endeavors, too. Learners will be in an environment with other fans of fantasy art and often feed off of the excitement and creative inspiration of one another.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Over time, students will gain critiquing skills and learn the very important difference being "critquing" and being overly "critical." 
My goal is for my learners to develop tools to combat impatience and frustration; to push for improvement yet respect the whole process along the way. Ultimately, "progress" is understood as recognizing what is "good" work and what might make it "better" and being able to apply that mental approach in a productive way.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
