4.95/5.00
Take your students on an artistic adventure into the world of watercolor sketching on location. Learn techniques of seeing and capturing perspective, proportion, color, and mood, like the impressionist artists of the 19th century. Help your students not only develop the technical skills of sketching but grow in their understanding and appreciation of the value of creating art on location, capturing life as it happens.

Although this course has been primarily designed to enhance art instruction, and aligned with NCCAS standards, teachers of all disciplines will find it personally enjoyable and applications can be made to nearly every subject. Your instructor is an avid sketcher himself, and his watercolor sketches have appeared in publications including The Art of Urban Sketching by Gabi Campanario and The Art of Watercolor magazine.

NOTE: Required book and basic sketching materials must be acquired separately.

Instructor
I believe that teachers are the backbone of society, and that education plays a major role in shaping a culture’s values. I made a career change to education after four years of active duty in the army and two years working in aircraft. For the past 25-30 years, I have had the privilege of teaching in a variety of settings in public and private schools, charter schools, and over half of my career teaching overseas in international settings. My educational interests include integrated curriculum development, art instruction, classroom climate, teacher care, educational technology, and Biblical integration.
