From Whitney <email@example.com>:
I am delighted to volunteer. I would suggest 4 or 5 one hour sessions, probably weekly, to start with. If you want to do this, I will write up a course description for you.
I would want to start with just one group to see how it goes. The only stipulations for starting out would be:
I will send a link every Sunday evening.
I would like to limit the size to 5 people, ages 14 up.
Email Whitney to sign up. firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to send a course description to the people who sign up because it will be helpful if they can set up a place in their house where they can put a subject (like an apple) with a light on it, especially for the first lesson. Also, I'd hope that they can have their smartphone AND a computer or tablet so that we can send images back and forth by text while they stay on the Zoom call screen.
For the first lesson, they can get away with some paper that's at least as good as decent typing paper, a clip board or some tape to fasten it down, and an eraser (not the one on the pencil, just a kid's pink eraser). But a full list of supplies is below. These items are available all over the place, including Walmart, Ocean State Job Lot on 31, and online at Amazon, dickblick.com, and elsewhere.
Nobody should buy anything MORE than this for the first 5 lessons. If they like it and want to keep going, there are obviously lots more ways to spend money!
1 drawing pad preferably with spiral binder like this:
Couple of #2 pencils. If they want drawing pencils I suggest keeping it simple - a set of 4 to 6 pencils of assorted hardness is fine.
A white vinyl eraser:
A pink eraser:
A pencil sharpener:
