Classcial Conversation Tutorials, Cycle 3 Weeks 1 and 2 are here!

Hello Everyone!

I’ve got Cycle 3 for you! (Or at least the beginnings of it!) Scroll down to the bottom to get the links for Weeks 1 and 2.

I will, sometime this month, most likely the final week of July, (pending my fourth well-treatment and test, roof replacement, and finalized closing date (third time’s the charm, right?)  do a video tutorial or Facebook live demonstration of the principles in these lesson plans.  For centuries, students learned by following a teacher’s demonstration, and I know I understood so much more when I watched and followed along as my art teachers in high school and college demonstrated techniques.

 

If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, sign up for the e-mail so I can let you know when that will be, as well as when the other four lessons will post.  I’m done with Week 3 and 80% of the way done with Week 4 and 5 (LOTS NEW IN WEEKS 4 and 5 ).

There are two changes to the tutorials from last year (other than the source images).

The first is a section called “Additional Information”.  This section is a hodge podge of more information, stories, or various facts relating to what we’re doing that week.  They didn’t fit into our “tutorials” as such, but I thought, if you wanted to read these while your students were busy drawing, or if you left them out for older students or parents to read on their own time, they might enjoy it.

The second new section is called “Take Home”.  A request I’ve come across time and again is ideas for practicing drawing during the week.  Especially for the parent who doesn’t think they can draw and/or never learned the hows and whys of drawing, trying to do anything during the week may be more intimidating, and therefore, ignored or easily forgotten.  But when you learn how to draw accurately enough you can communicate through drawing, you add a new communication tool to your “skills toolbox”.  Until a century ago, teachers had to prove they could teach children to draw, scientists had to take formal classes to be able to diagram their observations, most tradespeople had to learn drawing to create plans of their commissions.  Drawing, according to Ben Franklin, was second only to writing as a vital, communication tool, especially since drawing can cross language communication lines in a way the spoken and written word may not be able to.

Classical Conversations has already blessed us with thorough training in writing and public speaking.  Drawing used to be held in the same esteem as public speaking and eloquent writing. Let’s bring it back for our own and our students’ sakes.

Finally, I’m sorry for the delay.  After one year on the market and 72 showings, our house sold a month ago (the morning of Day 1 of my Practicum training, as a matter of fact!)  So if I’m not packing, or scheduling the various contractors for the required house repairs (our well either despises us or doesn’t want us to go…), or trying to track down required paperwork for this house or the next one, working on this, working on illustrating a book which comes out in October, I am probably a zombie in a corner somewhere, or binge reading Anne of Green Gables series for the thousandth time and trying to avoid thinking!  (I’m already up to Rainbow Valley, Rilla of Ingleside, Chronicles of Avonlea, which tells you how much I’ve been doing that…)  😀

Thank you for these tutorials. I love drawing, but teaching about it is a skill I’m still learning. I can’t wait for the next ones.

I have been in CC for 6 years and this is the first time I can explain to my student the “why” behind drawing. Thank you SO much! How can we find out when more weeks are done? We should pay you. this is so helpful!

Thank you so much. This is my fourth year tutoring and I am ready to challenge my students (and myself) to do more in the area of drawing. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I look forward to watching the growth of my class this year, as well as my own children. I did not grow up drawing and it has been neat to see the changes in myself as I start drawing and looking at details in the world all around me!
