Studio 508B: Beginning Art with Ms. Rucker

WELCOME ARTSY STALLIONS!

Here you will find lots of info and links to help you navigate digital learning. The majority of our class resources will be here for you.

I'm so happy you're here!

Welcome to Beginner Art with Ms. Rucker in Studio 508B! Why do I call it a studio? Well, that's where artists work and that's exactly who we are: ARTISTS! No matter what your skill level is, always know that Art takes practice, patience and time for you to find what you like best. Will it be drawing, painting, sculpting, digital illustration? Now is your chance to experiment with it ALL and see what fits you the best.

In the beginning, we'll get to know one another and get comfortable with our digital learning set up, plus go through the basic tools, techniques and vocabulary. Think of these weeks of digital learning as your introductory training and practice course in vocabulary, style and technique before we get to be hands on in the studio!
