Junior Creators: Magical Creatures Drawing Lab (Mythology + Art)

Imaginative, curious young artists will observe and explore a featured magical creature in order to observe it's unique traits. After a brief history, we will complete a guided drawing together, add our own details, and then share our creations. #creative

Class Experience

Students will learn to identify basic shapes and features of selected creatures.  Students will learn techniques for recreating those creatures on paper through guided instruction.  Students will learn introductory facts about the featured mythical beings, and will practice observation skills as we examine those creatures for their main features and shapes.  Students will practice following directions, asking questions, and presentation skills.  
I'm so excited to share my love of magical creatures with you!  I've been teaching STEAM and social studies topics like this one to preschool through middle school for 7 years through an independent STEAM education company, and I'm really looking forward to connecting with new students here on Outschool.  Not only will we be learning about the fantastic world of magical beasts--but we'll sneak in some colors, numbers and math, comparing and contrasting, observation, art skills, and more--all things that preK-through-2nd graders love to learn and practice!  Best of all, your child will have the opportunity to share, share, share all of their favorite magical facts and stories!
No homework.
Blank paper or a drawing pad/sketchbook (recommended). I prefer SPIRAL BOUND so that it may be opened flat for easier drawing. Pencils, pens, colored pencils, or other drawing/coloring supplies. Eraser Printer (for printing references if needed--I will also show them on-screen in class) Show-and-tell (can be other artwork or projects the student has been working on, or other dinosaur-related paraphernalia)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No formal assessment. 
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Some discussion of Mythical Creatures can be a little on the "dark" side, as many myths do not have happy origins.  That being said, I will be sure to keep all discussions age-appropriate, and will focus any lessons on the more positive, kid-friendly details and versions of the featured topics.  I have never had an issue, but children who are sensitive to these sorts of subjects should be aware. I do my best to keep the class pretty tame, upbeat, and age-appropriate.
