The Aurora Borealis is an amazing natural phenomenon that occurs near the North and South Poles. The best place to see them is near the arctic circle from September - April! We’ll begin class with introductions, students may share their age and favorite hobby. We'll then gather what information we already know about auroras, and watch an interactive slideshow explaining what causes an Auroras brilliant color display. Students will get to see a finished example of the art project before...
Students will learn what an Aurora Borealis is, where they occur and what produces the brilliant colors that they are known for. "Perspective" is discussed as we paint mountains in the background and silhoutted trees in the foreground (making them appear larger.) Students will also learn a blending and smudging technique using chalk pastels.
This is a class that I have offered to many families through various co/ops over the past few years, both online and in person.
Black construction paper Chalk Pastels Black oil pastel for trees and white oil pastels for snow (optional, chalk pastels may also be used) Tissue or dry sponge to smudge (optional, all you need is your finger) Wet wipes for clean up
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
