Class Experience

Students will learn:
- Why I love painting and find it a relaxing and enjoyable hobby.
-  Blending, brush strokes, wet on wet painting techniques.
- How to set up your painting space and how acrylic paint differs from other paints.
- How to clean up at the end of class and care for your paints and brushes.
- How to design your project by making a quick sketch on paper.
- How to begin painting and build from back to front.
The goal is to leave with a finished or almost finished acrylic painting.
I am an experienced classroom, after-school program, and summer camp teacher. I have taught many, many painting classes for this age level.
- Acrylic Paint and paper plates for blending - Paint brushes of various sizes - A canvas of your choice or thick paper - A covered workspace (Newspaper works great) - A cup of water -Paper and a pencil -A few paper towel sheets or a few napkins Optional, but nice (A hairdryer plugged in nearby)
There is no formal assessment, but I like to see students leaving class confident about trying other projects on their own.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
