I will be teaching students the tools used while painting with acrylic paint and how to get started on a project. We will use nature as our inspiration for this lesson. Each class will begin with a little introduction to myself, acrylic painting, and a discussion about painting summer memories. I will ask students to share what they know about painting in the chat. Students will be able to see me and what I am painting. This is an hour class, but I will paint a different painting in class...
Students will learn: - Why I love painting and find it to be 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.
- 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 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 per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
