Sketching Furby with my daughter today....funny little quick sketch.  Trying to show fur textures and shading techniques. using the side of the pencil with line work combinations.  Still trying to figure out how to introduce shading and light to kids.  Looking at proportions, shading and line-work and not sure how to bring the kids along on this.  Back in the class room in December or January and still need to pull together some quick handouts and examples .....more to come

We have been taking a really wonderful animation class at our local Arts Council!
The teacher is Chase Woolner  look him up!

The kids love the class, they make there own "stop-motion" animation with puppets they make from clay, wire, batting and epoxy.  They had a great time creating characters and bringing them to life. Below are my notes from his class on to sketch....
