Here is my brain storm on the class:

Name: "Start your week out learning Art-Tainment (Caricatures) with Lars"
Short Discription:

Week 1: First thing will be all set up for a retail style Caricature booth with display and all. I would then like to draw Eileen Crowell Largo Arts Cordinator  (or someone else in the class whom ever is first) to get there Caricature drawn. I will have the drawing recorded and to be projected on a screen projector. They can observe the 5-7 quick Caricature in Black and white, and then another 5- minutes to add the color. I will then ask them to draw each other on the spot, get to know each other, and also so I can see the level of the students. The rest of the day talk history, foundations, and they will receive a sheet on how to build there own easel!

week2: Importance of seeing shapes, squinting, sketching  from a photographs critiques by the end of Class.

week3: Demonstrate Traditional mediums, digital medium Caricatures and tricks in photshop for studio Caricatures. Home work continue to work on studio Caricature off a photo of a famous person of my choosing. I will also be working on the same famous person. due at end of Class for grading

week 4: Start the day with Students Caricaturing the teacher, and discussion, questions with teacher,  critiquing the final assignment.
