How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
“It's the imperfections that make something beautiful, that's what makes it different and unique from everything else,” -- Bob Ross. Mess It Up! is an on-going class, which means that it meets weekly, and subscribers are charged accordingly every Sunday morning. Subscribers may cancel their subscription at any time. For this class, that means that learners will learn to work with “mistakes”, build their confidence, and have fun creating art as they attend each week. Mess It Up! will...
I am delighted to be able to offer classes that emphasize fine art techniques through the lens of observational drawing. Observational art is a method of learning to draw with three principles in mind: understanding of the subject, building looking skills, and practice of artistic technique. Through this method and practice, learners can draw anything. Completion of my courses will result in a learner who is engaged with art and understands basic art technique. Even students who are not aspiring artists have much to gain from drawing, including improvement of hand-eye coordination and hand dexterity skills. Along with my bachelor’s degree in art history and studio art from a premier liberal arts institution in Ohio, I also have been teaching since 2016. My online teaching career began on Outschool in 2017. I have taught homeschoolers, unschoolers, and undergraduate students of all ages. My background in art history means that my classes are created with an understanding of historical precedence- I’m teaching what I know works! Many of my classes include examples of important artworks from masters for students to examine and learn skills from. In addition, my many years of teaching art have helped me curate concise and logical drawing curriculum that young artists can easily pick up and apply to their work. Every art class I teach hopes to provide learners with all the knowledge and support they need to grow as an artist.
***MATERIALS*** Young artists are REQUIRED to have paper and some type of drawing utensil (such as a pen or pencil) to participate in this course. However, I recommend that learners also have prepared: -Something to color with, such as colored pencils, crayons, or markers -Paint (watercolor or acrylic) and associated tools (such as brushes, water cups, and palettes) -Any additional art supplies your learner might enjoy
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
To remove the stress of what is sometimes a very daunting course of study, your learners will not have tests, quizzes, or formal grades in the class. Instead, I utilize positive verbal critiques to provide feedback and encourage improvement. However, if grades are requested I will provide them via rubrics that will suggest a grade. Learners progress will be gauged by the completion of their assignments, execution of techniques, contributions in critique sessions, and their class presence (being on-time, listening when I am speaking, and how they communicate with peers).
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
