Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Students will learn how to manipulate graphite pencils, colored pencils, ink pens, and markers. Students will learn how to illustrate facial and clothed figure portraiture, still life objects, photos, and animals using those media.  Students will also be able to use computer software to assist their illustrations.
I am a certified professional educator through the state of Indiana, licensed to teach visual art for grades preschool through 12.  I have taught art professionally since 2008 and have taught this particular course numerous times.  This course was developed in collaboration with other professional art educators at accredited schools to meet U.S. state standards and can be counted as a fine arts credit
Homework Offered
Each unit will take approximately 5-8 hours to complete with each sketch assignment taking about 30-45 minutes and each final project 2 and a half to 3 hours. Some projects may take less or more time depending upon the student and/ or the project. Directions for each assignment, project requirements, and a suggested completion timeline for both sketch assignments and final illustrations will be provided for each unit in addition to instructional videos and photos of finished examples.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
A rubric for each drawing project will be provided. Photos of final projects will be posted on the class page for the student critique. Critiques grades are completion based and given after posting one's final project along with a comment about one's favorite portion of the project, the most challenging portion, and one thing that artist likes about either another student's final project or one of the provided examples. Sketch grades are given prior to the final project and are completion based. Parents will also be given the individual graded assignments for every assignment.
Grades Offered
Units points include sketches, critique comments, and final projects as previously described. Parents can opt out of the course being graded and/ or can use the provide rubrics to grade the units themselves if desired.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will need a 9x12” or large mixed media or sketchbook for final projects. Students can use copy paper for the sketches to save on cost. Students will also need wooden graphite drawing pencils, a white plastic eraser, a drawing blending stump, a ruler (12” o 18”), colored pencils (optional), colored markers (optional), an ultra-fine tipped black sharpie marker or black felt pen, and a portfolio or folder to store finished drawings.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will be learning about the history of superhero comics for the cartooning unit which does mention the Great Depression and World War 2 as catalysts for graphic novels.  The bronze age of comic books will also be mentioned when comic books did take on darker tones and did tackle social issues like the war on drugs and racism. 

Students will be given past examples from previous drawing students who have given permission for their art to be displayed.  Because student art is personal to each student, some students have art that feature movie, game, and comic characters and may contain religious icons of that student. 

For the human figure unit, not nudity will be displayed at all.  The figure will be taught fully clothed.
For the collage unit, students will be using Pixlr.com, a free photoshop-like website that requires no download or account but does contain ads.
