In each class, your artists will learn to draw. No drawing experience is needed for this class! No experience needed!
PRIOR TO CLASS
Students should start logging into class about 10 mins before the scheduled start time. This allows time for you to resolve any technical issues with your device's connection. If you are using a battery-powered device (laptop, Ipad, etc) be sure it is fully charged or connected to a power supply.
I will use this time for students to show me any art they have completed and any questions prior to starting the class session.
START OF CLASS
First thing, we will go over the supplies needed for the lesson and will ask each student their name. I encourage students to use the chatbox during class for questions. If they have an answer to my questions they are then allowed to unmute to answer the question. I love class participation! Especially when we learn from each other about art!
Then I will begin the step by step process of drawing out our character in easy to follow instructions. Each step will be broken down to the simplest form by using common shapes like circles and lines. My favorite is comparing shapes to food! Like a potato or a pizza. This frees the artist to allow for imperfections in their initial sketch. Once we build our character out, we will add details, texture, shading, and form to our drawing. If it is a painting we will add these using watercolor paints.
My teaching style is very patient and fun! We love to laugh and enjoy being creative together. My passion is to inspire kids to be creative in hopes this will build their confidence as an artist and as an individual. Each student is important and contributes to the class.
END OF CLASS
At the end of class, each student is given the opportunity to show their work on the screen and tell the class about their work! This is a big confidence booster! You can see how much they worked and listened in class when they hold up their final art piece! Thank you for encouraging your artist to be creative!
It is important you log on 10 minutes before class and get set up! We start on time and this is a step by step class! I do not want your artist to come to class late and miss critical steps!
Enjoy learning to draw with Mrs. Emily from the comforts of home. With the online Classroom, you will be able to log on to a live class time and interact with not only your teacher but other students in the class. We don't just draw together, we laugh together!
You only need one membership per family! This means all the kids and parents can gather around one computer or laptop and enjoy learning to draw together! If you are on the go, grab your phone! This live class will go with you!
During class, students hear and see Mrs. Emily draw. The students can interact with her and other students through the chatbox. At the end of each class, Mrs. Emily will offer the webcam to those students who have parent permission to come on camera and show their artwork. This gives Mrs. Emily an opportunity to give feedback and the other students can see and give positive comments in the chatbox.
Please have students logged one 5-10 minutes before class to make sure the connection is ready! This is a step-by-step instructional class so please be early and not late to class!
Once you enroll and pay online, or make arrangements to mail us a check, we will send you the login info.
