**Please bring to every class paper, a pencil, and an eraser Learn to Draw realism: Explore the basics, of how to use line, shape, shading and proportion to create a wonderful realistic drawing. We will draw objects such as an apple, a coffee mug, flowers and animals. For semester-term students, we will discuss students' interests and priorities for drawing projects. ***Students are to be self-directed: Topics are to be determined together by the teacher and student.

Students will develop drawing skills at their own level.
My name is Lynda Diamond. I teach art to children, teens and adults. My painting and drawing classes focus on an exploration of line, colour and content drawing objects such as flowers or fruit to abstract geometric shapes. My Art History classes explore the different ways art has evolved and influenced our lives. I hold a BFA in painting from The San Francisco Art Institute. I attended The San Francisco Art Institute as a scholarship student. I have been teaching children, teens and adults painting and drawing for thirteen years. As an independent teacher. I offer a variety of class options. These options are one-day classes, ongoing and eight-week courses. I often teach art privately. I have taught college-level painting classes at Nova Scotia Community College. I have taught online ESL and drawing to learners in China. My art classes are always light-hearted in spirit. I believe that learning to paint and draw is great fun! My art students always want to return to more classes because my classes are so enjoyable. I am now teaching Art History classes too! I am uniquely qualified to teach Art History as the techniques I use in my own art-making come from great artists from the past. Here's an interesting note about me. I wanted to study with a great painter that lives in Norway. One day I flew to Norway. Luckily, I watched this master painter paint and learned so much from him. I will always be grateful for this experience and for the skills I learned. Arts educator, Lynda Diamond
If a student wishes to develop their drawing skills rapidly, I recommend some homework. If a student wishes to attend class with no homework assignments, this is fine. Each student will be advised individually.
Please bring paper, a pencil and an eraser to every class. Colour pencils are good too!
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will be using google slides to share images for our drawing projects. Google slides is an Outschool-approved third-party tool. You will not need to register for an account.
