1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Creativity is a very personalized process, I encourage my students to take "Progress photos" so that when done, they can look back at how they transformed a black canvas into a painting. These photos are a great visual documentation of their learning. In a year or 5 years, they can look back at their photos and realize how far their skills have come. Thus boosting their morale/ self-esteem to do more creative things.

Acrylic paint:
Please try to get "student grade paint" - Liquitex basics ($5-10/color) is what I recommend
You will use more white than any other color, so I recommend buying an extra white

This can be printed (8.5x11in) on a cheap printer (home, library, staples, walgreens)
The student can then transfer the line drawing to the surface with a graphite pencil
