Description

Class Experience

I have been working with students with disabilities so 7 years now, I have been a caregiver, community support worker, and classroom aide. I also have my associates degree in special education. I worked for 3 years as a one on one caregiver for a little boy who had severe muscular dystonia. He loved to do art and so I would do tons of adaptive art projects with him. 
Week one: 3 toilet paper rolls 3 strings several pieces of Construction paper (as many as you want to make and the color/s of your choice 3 paint colors of your choice that will show well on the paper you choose a plate to put your paints on Week two: three pieces of white card stock two paint colors that look good together that you want to use for the background two paint colors that look good together and contrast against the background that you want to use for the guitar two paint colors that look good together and contrast against the background that you want to use for the music notes a plate to put your paints on paintbrushes of at least three varying sizes, often a sponge brush is good because it can be easier to hold, so can a small paintbrush for walls or a basting brush, normal art paintbrushes are fine as well so long as your student can easily grip them. Week three supplies: Painted paper from week two a pencil scissors (adaptive scissors that you just squeeze are normally easier but you can always ask your grown-up to cut it out for you if needed) blank paper glue stencils of a guitar and music notes (I will provide a printout for these and also show your grown-up how to make their own if you don't have a printer) yarn Week four supplies: White cardstock blue paint for the sky light green paint for the grass a sponge brush a paintbrush Two or three bright colors that will show up on the green a plate for the paint
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will need adult assistance with scissors, glue, and other materials.
