curriculum overview

 

“Jason (Fizer) demonstrated a mastery of his discipline through the broad and in-depth historical and theoretical content of the lessons he taught, and through the excellent examples he created for those lessons. ... Jason demonstrated an awareness of diverse learning styles and he adapted his teaching strategies for individuals and for groups to fulfill the needs of students. ... His lessons also provided both cognitive learning, actual doing, and critical evaluating as parts of the learning process.”

Fellow educator, Charles B.

MATERIALS FOR DRAWING

3 additional colored pencils - we have these available for $5.

Strathmore 400 series Recycled Sketch (14x17) 24 sheets; 80 lb paper; green cover

These materials are purchased directly from Fizer Fine Art as they can be hard to find consistently in Roanoke stores. These materials will be used for many semesters. After a full set of painting supplies has been purchased, students will be charged a $10 canvas fee each subsequent semester to cover their canvases for the semester.

FALL 2017 - SEPTEMBER TO DECEMBER  beginning September 5

DRAWING

These classes are for all skill levels. Jason will continue to challenge his students as they progress from semester to semester.


PAINTING

Pre-requisite: For students ages 8-18, two semesters of drawing class with Jason. For adults, one semester of drawing with Jason.

MATERIALS FOR PAINTING

Any of these materials can be purchased at A.C. Moore using their 40% off coupon. Michael’s carries some of the supplies, but not all. Office Max sells the Prismacolor pencils for a good price, and Amazon has a great price on these pencils. These materials will be used for many semesters.
