A215: Self-Creationism [ The Anatomy of Art and Drawing ]: How to (Speed) Draw Proportions in Motion in Splash Spring 2020 (Mar. 28, 2020)
This class will briefly discuss the differences in anatomy, shape, and extraneous detail of human and animal figures before delving into the use of geometric shapes and patterns to form semi-realistic pencil drawings based off of majority class-based interest. We will also cover how to make figures “come alive”, and build on existing skills. Any additional remaining time will be used to discuss further interests or take doodle requests. It is advised that you bring with you paper and a writing utensil (mechanical pencils are preferable) to be able to take notes and follow along.


X218: Ciphers, Languages, and Encoding Secret Messages in Splash Spring 2020 (Mar. 28, 2020)
Learn how to create ciphers and new languages through patterns and iterations. Afterwards, we’ll be exchanging messages in code, and testing out each other’s ciphers in real-time. No coding experience necessary. (Please be advised that this will be more linguistics-based than anything else, and that students should bring paper and pens or pencils to be able to follow along. Whiteboards and markers for personal use would be useful, but are not necessary.)


H220: How to Finesse Your Words: Creative Writing 101 in Splash Spring 2020 (Mar. 28, 2020)
Learn how to make your writing come alive! This class will be about using metaphors, simile, and prose to make your words stand out and create imagery within the mind. Let's take a step back from the literal, and take our scenes where we want them to be. (As usual, paper and pencil will be necessary, though a text editor is more than enough.)


A96: Self-Creationism [ The Anatomy of Art and Drawing ] in Splash Spring 2018 (Mar. 24, 2018)
This class will briefly discuss the differences in anatomy, shape, and extraneous detail of human and animal figures before delving into the use of geometric shapes and patterns to form semi-realistic pencil drawings based off of majority class-based interest. Any additional remaining time will be used to discuss further interests or take doodle requests.
