In this 6 week flex class, students will learn how to create simple but adorable animal drawings using basic shapes that will be sure to amaze their family and friends. The students will be shown a new animal to draw each week/lesson via a step-by-step video instruction posted by the teacher on Sutori (using the teacher code provided after the student enrolls in the course) where they will also find printable drawing instructions and fun facts about the animal of the week. They will also be prompted to interact with the other students in the course by posting pictures of their completed pictures on our classroom gallery in the Outschool classroom page, by writing a positive comment on at least one (1) other students drawing(s), and by commenting about their favourite animal fact of the week. Please refer to the learning materials tab for a complete list of materials that you will need to make all the artwork featured in this course.
– Each week, students will submit their drawings to the teacher and will collectively create an Animal Art Gallery in the Outschool classroom page. Not only will the artists share their own designs with family and friends, they’ll become part of an artistic community in which their artwork can be shared around the world.
– Students will complete a reflection of their own work and write a positive comment on at least one (1) other students drawing(s) each week.
– Student will be prompted to write a comment about their favourite animal fact of the week.
– Students can post questions for other student-artists on the Outschool Classroom Community Chat, and/or share their favourite animals drawings of the week.

In the materials section below, you can find everything that you will need for this class. The students will be drawing with me as I teach the class, so parental supervision is advised, unless the student is already in a designated drawing “safe zone” (e.g. no possibility of drawing on furniture or walls).
