Here is my brain storm on the class:
Name: "Start your week out learning Art-Tainment (Caricatures) with Lars"
Short Description:

Week 1: First thing I will be all set up for a retail style Caricature booth with display and all. I would then draw a demonstration off a photo reference received from other fellow artist. 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 other links to references. Assignment is to do a value chart, draw shapes with shading in a medium of choice

week2: Have all your own sketch book to take notes, and sketch in to share with teacher. Importance of seeing shapes, squinting, sketching  from a photographs or the fellow student in front of you, critiques will be done with trace over lays by Lars.

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 or from photos supplied of my choosing. I will also be working a studio piece that you will be able to follow as the students work on there own work. Your final art work will be due at end of the month for grading.

week 4: I will continue to share news about the feild, share personal stories, work on private commissions right in the class that you will be able to along with, ask questions, while following my steps. You will be working on your final assignment in class, followed by me critiquing the Caricature art with a trace over lay or in photoshop showing pointers on how to improve. I encourage all my students to continue to keep me in the loop of your progress even after the class is over, but the further along you take the class with me the more advanced and harder the courses will be!

Dog-Snake Fantasy Project

How are you all doing, well before I go over what I am up to, I just wanted to take the opportunity to say THANK YOU to all my friends, clients, co-workers and family for you constant support. I have some crazy times with root canals (costing major $), a funding issue with a digital setup ( which I will set up a #gofundme account up soo I can try to raise money for the investment. I have faith in God he will provide for my family, but please keep it in your prayers things will turn around!
Here is an interesting sneek peak at a project I hope (she has not responded)? I just finished the painting and it is due in a couple days. She had some changes, but they were good ones. "Keep you eye on this blog post and I will share more with you in a few day's) Now off to pick up my medicine for my root canal I just got done, and some dinner"
Ok here is the whole project, I hope you don't mind seeing my rough sketches and thumbnails. There were some changes that improved the painting. I do like to hear feed back! Thanks
