Without them, we might be having problems with our OWN habitat! Learn to draw your cat, a dog, frog, bird or… cow. Maybe a lizard that’s endangered or a frog that can jump 20 feet in the air! wow. There’s also fish, bugs, birds and… well. more animals everywhere! Also learn about indigenous plants, some of which can even be made into a salad! Students will collaborate with others to make a piece of a cool puzzle mural about the animal and plant habitat. We will be using drawing, painting, glued on and other type of materials. About the Instructor: Barbie Watts is a multitalented artist who has been teaching and mentoring children in drawing in Sonoma County for the last decade. As an illustrator, her work has been commissioned as logos, posters, and signs, as well as landscapes, portraits, animals, abstract, collage, glue art, mobiles, and puzzle murals. Barbie’s nurturing personality creates an encouraging environment for students of all ages. She uses graphite for doodling and even some visual meditation to begin the class warm ups. A little art history and vocabulary, demonstrations, handouts, and weekly themes keep the students on track and excited as their work develops! She teaches a variety of disciplines, from loose to academic. Barbie is known for having a full array of drawing media and tool available, as well as watercolor, paper mache, metal, wire, wax, and more for drawing, painting, and building incorporated in her lessons. She finds a variety of disciplines allow her to give individualized attention so her students learn what works best for their own personal vision and artwork.
