Virtual Drawing Class: 9-13 yr olds
Time & Location
About The Event
These art classes will be taught through Zoom and run for one hour, 5:00-6:00pm every Thursday for four weeks. If you have not used video conferencing services before, Zoom allows me to see all of the children and their artwork, and allows the children to see each other, so long as their cameras are turned on. For a majority of the class, the children will be muted to eliminate background noise, but they will be able to unmute themselves at any time to ask questions.
Understanding the basic foundation of drawing techniques is a good way to advance your artistic skill! The class schedule is as follows:
- Week 1 (July 23): Materials and Sketching
This first class, I will discuss different drawing materials. We will briefly talk about types of paper and pencils, as well as styles of drawing before diving right into our drawing fundamentals. Kids will learn about line, shape, and form.
- Week 2 (July 30): Shapes and Forms
This week we will practice drawing forms from basic shapes. We will begin talking about shading techniques and give them some practice.
- Week 3 (Aug 6): Shading Practice
This week we will continue practicing shading techniques, starting with basic shapes and continuing with textures like fur and scales.
- Week 4 (August 13): Composition
This final week the children will pick a subject of their choosing to draw. It can be something from their imagination, a favorite animal, or something they see in the room, etc. We will discuss composition of drawings, to include balance, focal points, and negative space.
These classes are meant to build off of each other, and are therefore combined into a course. However, your child is not required to attend every class. During checkout, please select the dates your child will attend, or "entire course" if he/she can attend every class. Makeup classes will not be offered and videos will not be saved for viewing later (Zoom limits the number of "meetings" that can be recorded).
Materials for this class:
~No. 2 pencil
*Please note, these materials are not required, just suggested! Children can still participate in these lessons with a scrap piece of paper and a pen or pencil found around the house!
The age range is just a guideline. This is a basic drawing class, but slightly more advanced than the drawing class for 6-8 yr olds. Contact me directly if your child has interest in the class but falls outside of this age range.
Children who are attending the class with siblings are discounted! If you have more than one child, please select 1 regular ticket, and however many additional member tickets you need. You are responsible for obtaining the materials for this class. However, I do have materials available that can be picked up from my porch. Simply add a Class Kit to your order and I will contact you directly about a pick up time.
