Promethean Board

I've been volunteer teaching cartooning in Ben and Nathan's classes ever since Ben started Acacia 5 years ago, but this year the PTA (Potty Training Association as I taught my boys to call it LOL) fundraised and got these awesome Promethean Boards for the classrooms its like drawing on a giant tablet with a drawing program that's a lot like drawing in Photoshop. I usually teach them to draw something from their imagination and then a commercial character. We focus a lot on shapes, dominant mass (the big shape) and other important principles that I've learned in various Character Design classes that I've taken. With these new boards I think that I'll now teach them some color and composition stuff.
