PRE CLASS: students present work done over the week for instructor’s critique.
OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: Our inspiration for today is “For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall.” Psalm 18:29.
We all face problems; some come us unexpectedly, others we see coming. "For by You..." We have a companion, God, who willingly goes with us through our task. It is not by our ideas or inner strength that we overcome the challenges of our life, but, "By my God..." It is by my God. We must turn to God, and remember what we know about Him. With prayer I need to invite Him along to the battle. Christian victory is "By God." It is not just ''by God's help." No, that would suggest He is only a partner like a 50/50 him and me thing; instead it is 100% by God that I can run against a troop or leap a wall. Like King David we must give credit to the power that accomplished a thing. David was giving credit to the One who truly deserves it.
INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATION ON TECHNIQUE: Observing shapes to determine composition.
WARM UPS: 1. squares with circles inside 2. rolling figure eight pattern. 3. Grayation with balls. 4. Scribbling to make an eye.

TAKE HOME SKILLBUILDERS: How to draw a cat on a fence, how draw the old cowboy.
LONG TERM PROJECT: Every week we will illustrate two or three sentences that are part of a story. This is an opportunity to draw. The title of this story is the “Mystery of the Lost Heirloom.” It will take place in a world or universe of your own creation
“The mystery of the lost heirloom.” You have done the first three pages last week this week do pages 4-6, Write “These are my family.” Draw the persons in your avatar’s family. Give them names. Make some young, some old some, men and woman. Give them names. On page 5; write “One night _______ (pick one of the old persons you drew on page 4), Gave me a special responsibility.” Draw the two of you at a table with a candle or lamp inside a tent or whatever your family travels in. For page 6 write, “It was to be the guardian of the family treasure a ___________.” You decide what it is, But it must be something you wear like old shoes or an old beaten up hat or one glove or a scarf or necktie or anything you wear. It can be silly.
WARNING: You are up to 6 pages. Do not get behind on this- last year those who did never caught up!
