 Week 1
Lesson 1
Creating Drop Shadow Letters
We are going to start out with Lesson 1a: The Box. This lesson will help you get a handle on the 3-D shadow box technique. Once you have mastered 1a, it’s time to move on to Lesson 1b! Here we will begin to practice using letters. Use the PDF to practice letters, or hand write your own letters for practice - or a mix of both!
 Week 2
Lesson 2
One-Point Perspective from a Center Point
In Lesson 2a, where we will first practice a one-point perspective using a shape. Next, move on to Lesson 2b, where we will practice LETTERS! Use the printable attached, or hand write your own letters. Either way is great practice!
 Week 3
Lesson 3
Extra Deep Letters
In this lesson, we are going to use some printed letters. Print the new practice document attached before starting the video. There are two parts, so feel free to pause in the middle and do it at two different times, or all together!
 Week 4
Lesson 4
Create an Explosive Art Piece
Using what you already know, I'll show you how to build a really cool piece of art to make a 3-D phrase or shapes stand out and look like it's coming toward you from a vanishing point at the center.
This class is taught in English.
Supplies needed: paper (or printed off PDF supplied by me each week), pencil, eraser, and a ruler. (The ruler can be half-sized, such as a plastic protractor - it does not need to be a foot length.) I will be referring to millimeters or fractions of inches when using the ruler. If you would like to use ink pens, markers, colored pencils, or any other supplies to make your work unique, you are welcome to do so, however it is not required.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

Hello, I'm Ms. Jes! 

In my classes, kids unleash their inner artist using favorite characters and games that I’m just as passionate about as they are. We explore spontaneous creativity and embracing “mistakes”. Let’s start drawing outside the...
