Let's start with a subject, it can be anything. In this case lets reference H.R. Giger's alien because that is what you're really excited about and into today. Practice with something plastic like play-dough first. Form two ovals for the head, and you're gonna need some arms, a tail, and legs! Make sure to photograph your work.
So, you like paper and crafts. Let's use tape. What color paper do you want? Oh, black, because the alien is black. Let's go for the black.
You want to draw now, well, then let's draw with these oil pastels on paper. You can draw exactly what I'm drawing, or whatever you like. You are an artist. You can learn from me, because I'm an artist too.
Great work today. We don't like the aliens jaws, it's not really part of your vision, so let's take that away. Are we bored, you want to collect sticks for a sculpture? No, okay then let's draw.
We didn't get to the balloon sculpture today, or papier-mâché but if three-dimensions are what you're into, then next time I have some clay ready. Maybe dinosaurs next time? Faces? Houses? I've got a whole library down the street. It'd be really cool if we got one of these aliens life-size. If I can find some loose wood, or if that door is still outside my neighbors house we could make a really big one. You had alot of energy today, always occupied. Sometimes frustrated and dismayed, but trust me it's gonna be okay. We're artist, and we can learn from one another. I look forward to our next lesson.
Can't wait to work with some clay, and clay tools. Scoring play-dough just isn't the same!
