This week our students drew the F15 fighter jet. The lesson plan incorporated aspects of math, physics and geometry (Symmetry, measurements and proportions). Our students were also taught how to depict human emotions through facial expressions, and how to draw Focus the autistic super hero and themselves in the picture. Our students were also encouraged to modify the F15 if they wanted to explore their creativity.
Next week we will draw a battleship in class using one point perspective techniques.
Our in person graduation event will take place September 18th at 10am at Justice Comics store in Tempe. Lieutenant JG Dearmon from the US Navy has accepted our invitation to present the certificate of achievement and US Navy prizes to the graduates. We look forward to seeing our students develop their comic artistry on this program.
