I am excited to introduce online drawing classes with A Grimes Studio. My name is Allen Grimes and I have been teaching drawings classes on and off for several years. In the past few months I have been teaching online classes to select individuals. I enjoy teaching and helping individuals in their desire to draw, increasing their skills and to have fun with drawing! This new direction that my studio is taking is based upon the requests and interest from students and parents asking for drawing lessons. So I have decided with the addition of more students to showcase and offer drawing classes to those interested. As of now, I have one on one classes and two on one classes. These classes seem to work out the best. I have been teaching students for a semester at a time and or a specified time span as well. If you are interested in drawing classes, contact me below to get more info and if you have any questions.
Currently, I have been teaching lessons on drawing superhero/comic book characters. This has been very popular and fun with my current students. It's basically a process where I show them how to draw a certain character and they mimic what I draw. I help them out with form, anatomy, the details, etc. I still allow or want them to have their own style to their drawing. I do not want them to only copy exactly what I am doing. I believe in the beginning this is acceptable but to soon learn to add their own style and design to the drawings. That is one of my goals as well in teaching these classes. Along with drawing superheroes, I have been teaching a basic drawing class. The basic drawing class encompasses featuring drawing shapes, line work, perspective, etc. We focus on drawing what you see. I do incorporate these principles in my comic book character drawing classes as well, but according to the subject matter we are drawing.
Current Students - 11
(Now accepting new students!)
I will only be able to have a select number of students for certain time period whether that be a semester or another set time. I will post when my schedule is full and I can't take on any more students. Each drawing class is typically 1 hour. How many times a week or the amount of classes will be determined by you, but I can try to accommodate with current and new students to the best of my ability. I definitely try to be as flexible as possible. The ages of my students range from 7yrs old to high school age. I will update this section and the number of students I have for a certain duration/semester.
I will try to explain what I can in this section on how it will be done and what each student will need for the drawing class. I can go into more depth on information per student/situation, so please contact me for any questions you have.
Cameras, Laptops, Tablets, Computers, etc.
Basically, I need a way to see the student's drawing and if possible the student as well. The student needs to see me draw and hear me talk, but not necessarily see me. That would be helpful though in talking with them. There is not a specific brand or model of any of these items as long as we can see each other well enough for viewing the artwork and in the end making the process work.
Now some of what I mentioned above will be handled through the software. I will be using Zoom and Google Meet, but not opposed to other software. Again, as long as we can make the process work. I believe both of these software programs will allow multiple windows to which we can accomplish this. I am flexible on how we can make this happen. I want to be able to help out as much as I can.
Besides the hardware and software mentioned above, the student will need starting out: a drawing pad and pencils. Just a basic drawing pad with about 25-50 sheets and several pencils. Pens, markers, colored pencils will be added along the way as we make progress on the drawing classes. I am trying to keep it simple and will give enough time getting other items before we move into using other mediums.
Cost of Drawing Class
The pricing is based upon each class or hour of drawing.
Please email me for the pricing.
I have updated my student capacity section. I am accepting new students. I will update often on any new info and pictures of student's work and how this process is working out. Again feel free to email me on any info or questions you have!
