Class Experience

Students will learn techniques that will help them draw more accurately, from observation.  These techniques include: gesture drawing, contour line drawing, negative space, blocking in shadows, and perspective.  This is an INTRODUCTORY course-- true mastery of these techniques will require much practice, but this is a great place to start!
In all my years of classroom teaching, the one skill that seemed to make the most difference in whether students reached their fullest potential in art class was this:  did they feel comfortable drawing their ideas?  For this introductory course, I've honed in on a few essential drawing techniques that have helped my students build their skills and confidence, and catapult their creativity to the next level. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will need: a sketchbook (or 3 sheets of drawing paper per class--printer paper is fine), a pencil, a good eraser (test it before class!), a 12" ruler.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
3 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
