With a Master's degree in art education and a background of teaching K-12 visual art and arts-integrated activities (in public school, summer camps, individualized lessons, and online with Outschool since 2018), I'm excited to share my knowledge with students and facilitate meaningful discussions, analyses, and critiques of art as it is used in society and culture.
There is no required homework to be done between classes, but students have the option of commenting on the classroom page to answer critical thinking questions about the extra videos they receive after each session. Students also have the option of completing creative activities after class using prompts based on the artists we have discussed in each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
A few artworks we discuss in class will show nudity.
