Learn to Draw Anything: Ages 8-13/ 60 Minutes
In this class, students get to choose their subject while learning standard drawing techniques
The subject taught is basic drawing. Each student has the opportunity to choose their subject and to add as much or as little detail as they prefer. This includes a pet, favorite animal, a cartoon character, a family member, or even a self-portrait. I request that students have a picture printed out, available as a photo, or on a device before class begins, as well as to send me the image via email using the teacher tab on the learner page. It will be used as a constant reference during...
Students will be able to create a drawing that is all their own. They will learn about shapes and lines that comprise the subject, and how their combination contribute toward completion. Shading and blending techniques will be taught, with students deciding to what extent they would like to add these features to their piece. The choice will be theirs.
I am a lifelong, self- taught artist, beginning at a very young age. I received 3 years of advanced art instruction in secondary school. My experience includes selling my work in an art gallery which I owned and operated. I continue to be privately commissioned and give pieces as gifts. Prior to retiring from working in special education, I applied my skills in the form of art therapy for behaviorally challenged children in the classroom setting.
Assessments OfferedAssessment is informal - based on the finished product and improved skill. If students choose to work on their drawing between classes and would like an evaluation, they are welcome to send me an image and post it on our class page.
*Sketchpad (Printer paper is OK) * Set of drawing pencils- different grades: 2B, HB, 2H ( #2 standard pencil is OK) * Eraser * Stump (preferred, although a Q-tip or Kleenex is fine) * Sharpener ** If choices are specific, such as a pet, a Pokemon character, a character from a favorite game, etc., please send me an image in advance using the teacher tab on your learner's page.
