Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the basics of various methods and techniques. Understanding the art elements and terminology that will coincide with the materials of the weekly assignments and topics. Students will learn about art history, and the famous artist in both past and present times. 
I am currently in an Arts Degree program for my Associate's Degree. I have studied art for the past 15 years specifically with art fundamentals and developing skills in fine arts. 
Homework will be assigned weekly. Students will be given between 2-4 art projects depending on the pace of the class. During each art session, students will have the opportunity to work on assignments. If the student does not finish in class then that assignment will become homework to turn in. There will be required weekly art exercises that will be assigned outside of class time as well. 

**Students will have the whole week to finish homework assignments and art projects by Sunday at 11:59 pm (U.S.A Pacific Time Zone)
Materials: -Drawing Paper (Printer Paper) -Sketchbook (9X12) -Bristol smooth drawing pad (14x17) -Newsprint Pad (18X24) -Watercolor Paper or Mix Media sketchbook (9x12) -Watercolors -Pencils (I recommend 2B, 4B, and 6B) -Mechanical Pencil (0.5 or 0.7 is fine) -Compressed Charcoal -Soft Vine Charcoal -Conte Crayon (black or orange) -Kneaded eraser and another type of eraser of your choice -Pens or inks pens -Ruler -Fixative Spray for drawings
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Each student is graded on an individual basis. I grade on my expectations of you and your growth as an individual. Your projects will be graded using a Scale or Rubric for Grading Art given at the start of each project with the following criteria in mind:

Elements of Art – showing the use of the elements and principles of design in your work 

Effort- this means always striving for your personal best 

Craftsmanship- you have taken your time and done a careful job using materials properly 

Creativity/Originality- you have developed your idea and not copied someone else's 

Following instructions- you have met the criteria outlined for each assignment

Letter Grades will be based on an (A, B, C, D, and F)
A = Excellent, outstanding effort, exceeds expectations; “WOW!!!” 
B = Strong work, very good 
C = Fair, adequate, looks finished. 
D/F= work does not demonstrate standards and must be resubmitted
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be strongly recommended to use a spray called Fixative or spray adhesive, specifically for their artwork. This will keep your drawings and sketches from smudging or rubbing away. 

Fixative is a clear liquid made with resin or casein and something to evaporate quickly, like alcohol. It is usually sprayed onto a dry media artwork to stabilize the pigment or graphite on the surface and to preserve the finished artwork from dust. It is similar to what varnish would do on wood. ***NEVER USE THE SPRAY IN THE HOME OR ANYWHERE NEAR CHILDREN-MUST USE OUTSIDE ONLY-VERY STRONG CHEMICAL ODOR***
Students will be introduced to many art forms from multiple sources: Google searches, books, magazines, YouTube, and movie clips.
