Brothers and Sisters are really welcome to come along too, I teach the same stuff I would teach to secondary students or adults, lots of short drawing games and challenges, with some longer ones, very little ones may want to dip in and out but they are very welcome.
We mute generally so background noise is minimized. Its advisable to pin me at the host
Equipment: The usual Pencil case kit, pencils, pens, rulers, rubbers…and some printer paper, everything you have to hand. We are trying to be sustainable.
How it works: Once you register/ buy a ticket I will send you a zoom invite for the meeting, I will then teach the session and all participants can work either with their screens on or off..
We will start off with some fun drawing games and warm ups and then one challenge at the end. For the animation session we will decide at the start of the course if we are going to do a collaborative animation or work individually, ideally I hope we can do both. There is no test, it is just for fun!
About me: I have been secondary art school teacher for nearly 15 years amongst other arty things, and I have a dbs on the update service. Being able to teach via Zoom is a revelation but also very new so please accept my apologies for any technical teething problems we are experiencing!
These are some essential safeguarding guidelines that I expect and adhere to: ( most of these are done by me, but it is worth remembering about the background environments and making sure others in the room are aware they can be seen too)
- Switch the settings to have microphones and videos off when joining the meeting
- Ensure the host is in control of who can control the screen, save the video/chat content
mute and unmute all participants when necessary, including video screens
- Be conscious of background environments and others in the room
- Use the whiteboard and annotation tools to improve engagement.
- Remind users about respecting others and using the chat box for commentary and,
- Please dress and talk appropriately!
warmest wishes to you and yours!
