Hi Lore,

Distance teaching is definitely a different organizational process from
in-person teaching, though the drawing lessons are similar. I *am* able to
offer guidance during a project. While I cannot stand over the student
while they are working and say, "try this, hold your pencil like this,
check your proportions",  I make and share tutorials, video conference
weekly, and, if a student needs feedback during the week, we email. I
actually spend more time with each student in my online classes than I do
with students in the live classroom, where our only contact is during class
time. When I taught middle school art, students had a portal where they
could download their work and ask me questions privately. You are teaching
at a school, yes? Do you know yet how you will be administering your
lessons?

You are welcome to email me off-list.

Best,
Gretchen
