This class is is an invitation to explore the art and the practice of deep looking. Together we will learn that relationships grow through the art of paying attention, and the more you pay deliberate attention to nature the more you will fall in love with the world and love life on this planet. We use the elements of design while nature journaling and for paying attention. The topics included in nature journaling are line, shape, value, texture and space. Together we give up the idea of...
Students will improve their understanding of the elements of design and utilize them in creating works of art from studying and observing nature and exploring the natural cycles of life. Each week we collect an object from nature and bring it back into our virtual classroom to explore the elements of design and to reexamine plant life with enthusiasm and love. We will learn to use iNaturalist app to identify the flowers or plants we are finding outdoors.
I have been teaching art in public and private schools for over 20 years with degree's in fine arts, education/behavioral disorders. God blessed me with two boys who are now ages 7 and 10 and who I can truly say are my most favorite works of art. You see, I see life as a work of art and the world of art as a way to explore life. I see every moment as an opportunity for expansion and transformation. Every lesson I teach is multilayered and done with compassionate contemplation. Your children will be heard, they will be seen and cared for in the most wonderful sort of way we could ever do on a virtual platform.
Homework is optional. Student will be encouraged to have a pet subject that they can draw daily and share every week.
Bring to class: sketching paper, pencils, eraser, a 6b and 8b pencils and kneaded erasers are recommended but not necessary. Two or three natural objects from their surroundings that were foraged or collected and that are interesting to them. Examples include but are not limited to; feathers, leaves, flowers, crystals, rocks, branches, driftwood, and even fruits or vegetables. This is an interactive class and all students are encouraged to participate and share their findings. If you have the capacity to download and use the iNaturalist app let me know in advance and we can use this to identify the things we find in nature.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
