Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will exercise their spatial awareness in deciding how close or far apart their letters should be from one another, how to construct letters, and where to place design elements on their letters.  They'll also learn some lettering and typography vocabulary as we create letters together as well as be encouraged to think creatively about how a letter will look -- the word "cloud" might look fluffy, for example, or "dragon" scaly.
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Learners will need paper (any size will work; I'll use 8.5 x 11 printer paper for my demonstrations), a ruler or flat edge for penciling guide lines, a pencil and an eraser, a marker for outlining, and whatever the learner would like to use for color (colored pencils, crayons, pastels, etc are all totally fine). 

If a learner prefers to use a tablet, that's totally OK -- we can use the same techniques there as well. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
