Class Experience

This class will help students to identify their feelings and assign names to those feelings. It is an opportunity for them to create a work of art depicting and processing their feelings.
I am an artist and full time (brick and mortar) and Outschool teacher. I own and operate a working and teaching studio where I hold classes for k-adult, and teach ZOOM art classes for adults. I specialize in painting, silk scarf dying, aluminum etching and jewelry fabrication, and sell my works in specialty shops in my area and online. If you have an idea for a class you are welcome to message me to request an Outschool class for your children. Thanks!
11 X 15 Watercolor paper 140 lb.
2" painter's/masking tape

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
**Parents please set up a good painting space before the class begins! Clear a large space for the work area and protect any important items-computer, floor, furniture, etc. There is a water spill risk with this project so use only an inch of water in the wash tub at a time. This can be changed as necessary and prevents any large-scale issues with spillage. It also discourages students from "painting" the water in the bowl. Secure the painter's/masking tape 1/2" around the watercolor paper edge creating a clean white border for the painting and securing the paper to the table surface or newspaper. This will also create a beautiful edge for your child's work of art and make it frame worthy if you desire to do that. The attached "painter's/masking tape" video is only 2 minutes long but can be helpful if you want to save this artwork for display or framing in the future. You can find the masking tape video link in "External Resources."
