Started off with a cartoon and realistic version of the school mascot, the Elk
Shared what I do as a living and passed around some of my art prints. Everyone knew all the characters, and all kids expressed watching and enjoyed seeing mlp:fim, including the boys. So I didn't need to explain the characters at all.
After talking about the many different things an artist can be, I switched up to giving a brief cartooning lesson. I had them focus on drawing shapes and gave them only a minute. The whole lesson and focus was doodling, not making polished drawings.
My next task was for them to draw myself as a cartoon. I encouraged them to over exaggerate any feature of my face. Make my nose big, my ears floppy, big glasses! I walked around and enjoyed the many ways the kids cartoonified me. I wanted them to draw whatever comes to mind, and not focus too much on details. Other lessons was knowing when to doodle and when to not doodle. During a teacher's lesson? Dont doodle. Finished with school work and have free time? Doodle! I told them when they go home and finish their work, doodle like crazy.
Did a few more doodles on the white board myself.
It was a great experience talking to the class. Every student raised their hands when I asked 'who likes to draw?'. I made it a point that its ok to fail too, dont worry if you have a lot of bad drawings. Focus on improving and practicing, drawing what you like. Eventually you will see yourself improve. If the majority of the students ends up drawing as a big hobby, thats great. If one or two ends up making it a career, thats also great. In summary, class enjoyed what I shared and had fun doodling. Teacher expressed I did a good job and she would glad to have me back anytime. And to wrap it up, the whole class went to me for an autograph at the end of the class. It was a lot of fun.
