Description

Class Experience

Students will learn to accept getting messy and making mistakes as a way to experiment with finding their voice. Students will learn basic drawing principles for different anime styles while being challenged with some basic to intermediate techniques. 
Students will learn shading, perspective, and proportion sizes through the nine principles of drawing.  
Students will learn how simple shapes can help to create their style and independent voice. 
The class can be challenging, so each student will have the opportunity to practice mindfulness during the class's practice portion
Hey! 
I am Tammy Whelan, and I help my students discover themselves through art!

With over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience and degrees in Psychology, I have created a personalized pedagogical approach to learning for all my students. Being certified and registered as a member of the National Tutoring Association and Yoga Alliance and training in Arts in Health and SEL*F, I am passionate about cultivating a growth mindset that encourages effort and perseverance. 

A Personalized Approach
I run an interactive and collaborative classroom, making it a point to try to adapt to my student's learning style, schedule, and needs. My effort is to ensure that my students have feel good about their efforts at the end of each class. 

I motivate my students to dive deep and enjoy the very process of creating art rather than simply focusing on the end product. My approach to teaching involves believing in the uniqueness of each child and seeking to connect with and draw out that aspect of theirs into their art.
Weekly drawing exercises will be given but are not required. They are there to allow students to practice their skills to understand the technique and lesson better. 
Supplies needed each day: -Sketchbook Journal or paper -A pencil (mechanical & granite #2) -A stump (Fingers can work) -Rulers
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
