Class Experience

Learners who take this as an ongoing class will develop as artists.
- They will learn fundamental art skills such as, basic drawing, rendering, and lighting.
- They will learn shading techniques using graphite pencils and pen & ink: Pointillism, hatching, crosshatching, contouring, pointillism, scribbling, pattern shading, circle shading, blending.
Every week I will expect learners to demonstrate the shading technique I cover in class. I advise that learners keep a sketchbook so that all of their learning is in one place. Learners may choose to draw multiple 
Pencils (4B/6B, 2B, HB, 2H are ideal)
Fine tipped black felt pens (I use Micron Pens 01, 03, 05, 08 and Graphic 1)

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I do not like to assign grades to art because it can be so personal. I will provide detailed feedback based on photos the learners send me. If learners do not send me photos of their art I will not be able to provide helpful feedback. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
