Teaching Observational Drawing

Observational drawing is a foundational skill for both the student and the teacher in the field of visual arts. It is a learned skill that requires concentration, analytical thinking, problem solving, and perseverance as one attempts to translate three-dimensional objects onto a two-dimensional surface. This course is designed to take your students' (and your own) observational drawing abilities to the next level and develop lessons that align with the National Core Arts Standards. You will be required to purchase drawing materials and complete many observational drawing exercises, submitting photos showing stages of your work, and developing lesson activities for your students. Grading is not based on level of ability, but rather on completion of assignments. Beginning artists are welcome!

NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.
