Class Experience

Learning goals:
*Practice drawing different animal bodies
*Practice colored pencil shading techniques
*Practice spatial awareness by measuring where to draw one line in relation to another line or point
*Develop an appreciation of one's unique artistic abilities
*Have fun creating art in a supportive environment
*Gain greater understanding and appreciation for animal species around the world
With a bachelor's degree in biology (environmental, population, and organismic biology with concentration in animal behavior) and as a self-published author and illustrator of a children's picture book, I absolutely love combining my love for animals, the natural world, and art. I taught after-school art classes for a time at elementary schools and recreation centers, which was one of the first experiences I had with teaching and fell in love with it. Teaching art and science is something I also do as a home school educator, so I have the benefit of knowing how to teach successfully in a traditional school setting as well as in a home environment. 

As far as teaching approaches go, I like to set up each individual student for success by providing overviews and tips for drawing foundations during each video tutorial and provide the kind of drawing lesson that can be completed in the span of one session. Being able to come away from one lesson with a complete art project not only provides students with the satisfaction of finishing something right away, it gives them the confidence that they can do it again and build their art skills even more in the next class!
1. Each week post a picture of a completed drawing of the species in the lesson that week to the classroom.
2. Participate in all of the weekly group discussions and story-telling activities.

Student supplied materials required before each class begins: 1. Drawing paper of dimensions 7 inches by 10 inches or larger. 9 inches by 12 inches is a common size. Printer paper may be used, but note that the smooth texture will cause graphite and colored pencils to adhere differently to the paper than they would on rougher artist drawing paper. 2. Graphite pencils of hardness 2b or softer. Every day 2b school pencils of this sort will work fine for outlining a drawing. However the teacher will usually be using Derwint brand graphite sketching pencils, which come in a range of hardness (5b-9b are some the teacher's favorites). 3. Black pen for outlining - fine point, acid free, waterproof. Note that some Sharpie brands, as well as markers, tend to spread on drawing paper. Pigma Micron is a good brand that can be purchased at Target, Michaels, or Barnes and Noble if buying in the U.S. 4. Colored pencils of any brand. The more variety of colors, the better. The teacher will usually use Crayola or Staedtler brands, but students are welcome to use other brands if they have them - the teacher will be able to make appropriate suggestions for color matching. Each lesson PDF will have a list of what specific colors we will be using for the particular drawing that week. 5. White or soft eraser 6. Pencil sharpener Material Costs and Suggestions on Where to Buy: These materials can be found at retails stores such as Target and Walmart, and arts and crafts stores such as Michaels. They can be ordered online or purchased at an actual store location. Costs vary, of course, depending on place of purchase. The following are prices found online at (accurate as of 6/9/2019; note some items are found only online): *Strathmore® 300 Series Sketch Pad, 9 x 12, 100 sheets = $12.49 *Sketching Pencil Set by Artist's Loft® (w/ sharpener) = $5.99 *Crayola® Colored Pencils, 24 Count = $4.67 *Pigma® Micron® Fine Line Pen Assorted Tip 3 Pack, Black = $9.99 *Artist’s Loft® White Vinyl Eraser = $1.69 *Artist's Loft™ Metal Sharpener = $2.09 Materials Provided by Teacher: *Link to recorded lesson video *Printable lesson PDFs containing the following: -Materials List (e.g. list of specific colored pencils used for each specific drawing) -Short list of information about the animal featured for each class -Nearly full page image of completed graphite/pen outline of animal, which students may use as a visual guide alongside teacher's instruction
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Upon request, a PDF certificate of completion for the class is provided to each learner at the end of the 4 weeks if the following requirements have been completed:
1. Posting of a picture of a completed drawing of each of the 4 species of animals to the classroom page
2. Participation in each of the 4 weekly group discussions and story-telling activities
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
When discussing what animals eat, we may talk about how one species of animal is an herbivore and eats only plants and how another species is a carnivore and eats other animals. However, just making that observation of how an animal eats other animals and listing examples of what kinds of animals it usually eats (e.g. insects, small rodents, large animals) is about as detailed as we will get concerning that topic.
