Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(204)
Students will be taught simple tools for drawing realistic birds with more accuracy and character. We will draw simple, but realistic birds from photos as practice for longer drawings, or for drawing from life for nature journaling.

Class experience

Learn simple tricks of observation to improve the accuracy of their drawings
Learn artistic techniques to improve the character of their drawings
Basic knowledge of parts of a bird (songbirds)
Learn to draw from reference photos as practice for more in depth drawings, or for documenting birds from life for nature journaling
The goal is not just for your student to follow along and copy a realistic bird, but give them the tools to be able to go away and continue to draw beautiful, expressive and realistic birds on their own. 
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
Again, students are welcome to send me images of the birds they draw with their new skills for feedback after the course is finished.
Grades Offered
 5 files available upon enrollment
Scrap paper for practice drawing printed reference photos (can be black and white) Paper for bird drawings- I recommend something heavier than printer paper so that final drawings will not be flimsy, and no larger than 5x7 or 8x10. Students have more success in practice when forced to draw within a more manageable area. If student is really proud of work it might be disappointing to have done it on printer paper, but anything without lines is acceptable. If students already have an art or nature journal they are welcome to use it. Pencil- this can be a drawing pencil, or a regular pencil. Mechanical pencils are fine, but they can be difficult to erase because they indent the paper. Sharpener Eraser Optional: clip board
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
