Class Experience

Students will be able to draw a simple object or series of objects that are all assembled in a pleasing composition.  They will follow a line drawing, and follow the teacher's guidelines on the proper way to color the drawing.  We will use colored pencils.  I am very particular with the way students complete their projects.  They must be neat and complete.
All of us have a gift to share with others, and this is what I want to share.  I started drawing when I was very young and haven't stopped.  I love drawing more than anything.  I'm also naturally good at teaching.  I've been an art teacher for over 18 years, and I've also taught Drama, Photography, Speech and Dance.  I've always been really good at explaining things.  Plus, I enjoy the students.  If you know your son or daughter likes art, I will help them create beautiful projects worthy of framing on the wall, not just curling up on the refrigerator! :)
I will provide my expertise. The Students need to purchase or bring the following materials: 1) Drawing paper. A white drawing paper tablet (found online on Amazon, or or Target) will work great. I prefer 80 lb. weight paper, so I think the paper at Target might be lighter weight, but it's certainly fine if that's all you can get right now. 81/2 x11" or 9x12". Strathmore has a 9x12 60-sheet spiral pad in 64lb. weight at Target for $6.49. Also - "Mellisa and Doug" Drawing pad 50 sheets heavy weight on Amazon for $2.99. Just be careful that it's not too stiff like card stock. 2) A Pencil - Bic #2 mechanical 0.7 pencils from Target are my "go-to" pencils. BIC X-TRA LIFE. A 40 count box is about $10 but you can buy single pencils. Don't get 0.9. Not the x-tra smooth x-tra strong or sparkle...they break too easily. I create significant art using these and they're way cheaper than drawing pencils, but easy, since you don't have to sharpen them. If all you have available are Ticonderoga #2, that's fine. 3) An eraser. White Pearl is fine..Target 3-pack $1.99 4) an Ultra Fine black Sharpie. 2-ct. $1.89 or 4 ct. $3.89 All these things can be found at Target. 5) The students will also need Colored pencils, and if Prismacolor colored pencils are not in your budget, (don't worry they aren't in most people's budgets), then Crayola is the best bet. They work fine for a class like this. Also at Target - 24 ct. $2.99. **** Additional! - gel pens* for the final decorations. *Gel pens are optional - Uniball Signo white can be found on Amazon. (highest ratings)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will look at all the students' work during class and assess them along the way.  As long as the student tries his or her best and does neat, complete work, he or she will be successful!
3 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

About Me

My name is Margie Samuels.  When I began teaching privately and for independent learning centers, after years of teaching in school classrooms, the students began calling me "Miss Margie", which I found very personal and endearing and I...
