So this one was mine that I did. I teach them step by step how to draw the picture through picking out the shapes first. Every once in a while I get to teach them my own stuff. For example, I teach them tricks and tips on how to make the drawing a little easier. They get really frustrated sometimes. So I really have to do some creative thinking in order to get them to calm down and keep trying. I also changed the ear. I made it flop when it should have just stood up. I did give them a choice for the flop or straight up. Some chose straight up. But not many. I think, one! ;) So its fun to teach them cute little things and to open their minds up so they can make the art work their own. I also try to teach them to focus.. Slow down... and draw light and soft. Clean lines.
This picture here has a story and I love it. My daughter Ryley walked to my class after school this day. She walked in and all of the sudden the student who was drawing this could not draw anymore. She distracted him so greatly by her presents! I laughed. He could not compose himself around her. I am thinking he thinks my Ryley is pretty! He tried and tried over and over to get the heads right! He usually draws better than most in my class.
Now this is Holly. She draws very very well. As you can see here too I give them a chance to kinda do their own thing as well and be creative so they do not get bored with the lessons. She put in grass in the background instead of what I did. And it looks really cute! She did a great job.
Here is the only student who decided to keep the ear up. She is in the 2nd grade. She did a wonderful job. :) She does need to learn to slow down a little and be a little lighter with her drawing. But she is learning! :)
So that is a glimps of what I do in my drawing classes. I am sure you can look up Young Rembrandts in your area. Its fun.. Its only an hour of the day and you get paid for each class that you teach.
