Class Experience

Students will improve their design skills, creative independent thinking through experimenting with design.

Students are welcome to ask questions and learn about being a cartoonist, anime history, going to art school (school of visual arts), and information about tablets and digital design.
If students want to send me their work after class for edits I am happy to oblige!
#2 Pencils, Ruler (or a straight edge like a book), 4 pages of paper, erasers the smaller the better, coloring materials (colored pencils, crayons, markers etc) Optional: Drawing app like Ibis paint PLEASE have experience with the app. The pace is easier for pencil drawing, not as much for beginners to digital drawing. To clarify, this lesson can be done using either an app or pencils.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will ask students if they want any edits or suggestions for change. It's their choice to share, but not showing me their work can result in disappointment since verbal directions can only do so much. 

ex: not placing a circle on the page exactly where i say so, may result in not being able to draw the legs, or making it too small could cause stress in designing the character.
50 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
ESL: Non-english speakers can watch and follow along, however, it would help to send a message in advance that you will be joining, so i know to talk slower and use simpler speech since there are a lot of verbal directions. Native speech can go only go so slow and still sound natural.

Ages: The ages that join vary as shown in the description,  I think it's important to give as many children a chance to learn the basics as long as it is developmentally appropriate. This applies to this class only. Nine is the bare minimum, success varies on the student.

Sharing and Communication: If your child is not sharing their work and not asking for help I can't give them the drawing they are looking for, as I don't know if they are following instructions. Please, find out if they did or did not share with me, and spoke up while doing so.  

Transfer requests need to be made 24 hours or more in advance. I cannot transfer to an empty slot. If session is missed you may only transfer to a class with another student registered.
