Since the dawn of time, drawing and illustration have been natural ways of expression for humanity. They are also one of the most universal ways of communicating, which is acquired in early childhood and is understood by people from any culture.
Because of the universality of the language of images, teachers can use drawing and illustration to engage their audience and help students to process complex ideas. Unfortunately, this can be intimidating for adults, who often stop drawing when they finish school.
This course will provide school teachers with the essential tools and theory to deep back into drawing and illustration.
Participants will learn the basics of drawing and illustration, from color theory to drawing shapes and lines, from decomposing objects into simple forms to drawing simple figures and creating characters.
The course will also explore the psychology of drawing. Participants will learn to find their expressivity, use drawing to bring focus to the topic, or activity, and tap into their creativity.
Moreover, participants will discover how to exploit drawing and illustration to support their student learning. For instance, they will understand how drawings can facilitate memory by defining orders of information, how creating visual anchors can make topics more interesting and engaging, or how to improve reading comprehension through illustration.
The course will have a very hands-on approach, combining elements of the theory, individual and group work, and discussion. It is designed to progressively drag in the activities of anybody, even without previous experience.
Participants become more confident in using drawing techniques as teachers and create their portfolios. At the end of the course, participants will be comfortable while drawing in the classroom and feel ready to use illustrations and drawings to scaffold their students’ learning and enhance their educational activities.
