Teaching again

Postby Masato » Sun Oct 18, 2020 4:38 pm

So all classes were shut down for covid. It's been what? like 8 months ago?

I did a few online classes during lockdown but they are lame. I think I did a good job but it just feels sterile, I didn't enjoy at all.

Life is busy and teaching doesn't make me much money and its a lot of work so I thought if I'm gonna teach, maybe make it the coolest gig I would like to teach best. So I put it together, I got 5 super talented kids signed up so far with a maximum of 9 (due to covid rulez).

Around here there are some really top schools for art and animation and design etc, but the best of these are really hard to get it, there is so much demand etc. So the goal is to find kids that are serious about it and that have the skills and potential and help em make as best they can before applying. Lifedrawing is a huge part of portfolio judging, yet most teens don't understand this, they have no idea how important it is and how much time it takes to start putting it all together.

Starts next week, I've never done anything at this level before.

Had my first intro class Saturday.

Tonight I teach lifedrawing for the very first time. I am pumped!! :D :D

only trouble is I'm gonna try not to smoke any weed, don't want my students smelling it on me. I usually have a toke or 2 when I lifedraw. Maybe I'll dig out the vape.

Wish me luck!

LOL crazy night.

2 students show up late for my instructional class (no model)

A Dad shows up says he wants to take the course.

1 student shows up 5 mins late for the actual modelling. Class is full so I quietly give her my spot, and have to sit in a really shitty spot behind a post and a light in my eyes.

5 mins later, a student taps me on the shoulder. She is crying and whispers 'I didn't know it was going to be nude'. lol I have to take her out and console her until her parents pick her up.

People at the door and during break asking if they can join my instructional, how much it costs etc. I have no idea haven't thought about it, tell everyone I'll get back to them.

All these distractions = I drew like stank, lol


All in all I had tons of fun though :D was crazy but I liked it. Can't wait for next week.
