Class Experience

Students will improve by developing their technical drawing skills such as, how to use shapes, getting proportions, line work, hand to eye coordination. They will also be gaining experience with creative brainstorming and working under a deadline, giving them a feel of what it's like working within the industry and a professional enviornment.
I decided to offer this class to cater to students who want to learn how to draw cartoons and anime, but don't know how to get started while also introducing a fun and simple way to get started coming up with and drawing their own, original characters. Students will be in a fun, relaxed environment with likeminded classmates that are their age. This will encourage comfort and familiarity so each student won't feel awkward, out of place and discouraged.

This class is perfect for me as a teacher because it takes past and current experiences that I've had from teaching two different classes, .i.e Drawing an existing character and Drawing an original character, and combines them. This is a type of class that no other teachers on the market have offered to anyone- child or adult. You can only find it exclusively from me on Outschool. Lastly, it gives students the chance to get an idea of the type of experiences they can expect from future classes with me, including information learned, skills gained, artistic challenges and growth and access to a professional environment imitative of what they would get working within the industry.
Students will not have homework for the class.
Paper/sketchbook of your choosing, pencil and eraser are all that's needed. Students have the option to use a tool for line work and color, such as a brush pen, micron, markers, colored pencils, etc. if they would like to.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Work will be shown and reviewed by their peers in a brief "show and tell" at the end of each session. There will be no grades, point system or any such thing used to assess the students' work.
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There will be no content that requires parental guidance. All characters and images referenced to will be wholesome and family/child friendly.
