I am currently teaching my students how to draw a cat. I have detailed instructions on how they need to layer each color, how sharp their pencil needs to be, and how light or heavy of a pressure they need to use with their pencil. I also have work-in-progress pictures of each step for their reference as they go along.
Here is an example of a step.
Step 17 - Demo 11 – Color: Henna - Point: Very Sharp – Pressure: Medium
Apply Henna to the darkest areas of the ears, pressing harder in places to give shape to the ear.
Here is one of the work-in-progress pictures.
I had the best thing happen to me today while teaching at my new job. One of the participants must of had a great art day because when we were finished, she gave me the biggest hug. Don’t you just love it?
