Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Each instructor at Megapixels School of the Arts is a master of their craft and is certified to teach the Megapixels Method. This method of instruction trains students to be able to draw realistically while having the freedom to go wild with creativity and the mindsets to succeed.

We are on a mission to empower kids to become lifelong learners, who are confident in their creativity so they can overcome any obstacle, achieve their biggest dreams, and change the world.

We facilitate an inclusive learning environment. 

We encourage students to not get caught up in perfectionism but rather to enjoy the process, which further unleashes creativity.

There are no grades for this class, but I love to encourage students by pointing out what I love about their art. There are no mistakes in art! But at the same time, if there's part of their art that the student isn't happy with, I can offer suggestions on how to improve that as well. 
Required: Regular pencil, eraser, paper

Optional: blending stump or Q-tip and ruler. Prismacolor's Ebony pencil is nice to have but not required. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
