In this course, we will explore different ways to create artwork featuring felines on A.T.C.'s: Artist Trading Cards. Artist trading cards are 2.5 x 3.5 inch artworks which can be created, traded, collected, and gifted. Some basic directed drawing instruction will be provided with lots of options, and artists will be encouraged to be creative and follow as much or as little of the directions as they like. We will start with drawing, and choose our medias individually as we go. Demonstrations...
Students will: develop observational and imaginitive drawing skills through practice and experimentation. learn about the history and tradition of artist trading cards. learn how to label, title, and present their artwork. experiment with a variety of art medias. learn how to create an accordian book. develop fluency in communicating about their artwork.
I've been teaching art for over 20 years in many settings, and making, showing, and trading ATC's for over 10 years.
The more you practice, the better you draw! Outside work will be encouraged, but never required. We will discuss the importance of making time to develop the skills and talents we wish to grow with the understanding that everyone has busy schedules.

(Please note, these are not necessarily the best deals, but they can serve to give you an idea of what you can use. I encourage kids to use whatever they have around the house, as art supplies are pricey!

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment for all of my classes is encouraging, organic, and constructive. There is no right or wrong way to make art, and we all grow with time and practice. I will share helpful tips and provide thoughtful feedback while honoring the individual artist's style and recognizing their efforts.
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents might wish to direct their children to create their art in a suitable place, and might want to help their children with the cutting of cardstock. Here's one way to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpStB7zSnt8&t=23s
