No live meetings
In a Flex class, there are no live meetings. This means your child will receive pre-recorded video lessons they can watch and paint at their own pace on whatever schedule works best! HOW IT WORKS: Each Monday, I will post the week's video in the classroom and it will be available for the duration of the Flex session. Students may work on their painting using this recording as their schedule allows! On Wednesdays, students will also be given a question or prompt to respond to in the...
Students will get a great experience using color blending on a small canvas. This is the easiest way to learn to mix and blend colors smoothly, as tiny canvases allow for fast painting and avoid paint drying too quickly. Students will also work on precision and brush control contributing to building fine motor strength and dexterity.
This class really benefits students best when there is a lot of classroom participation. Please help your learner to: 1. Submit a photo of their work weekly, by Friday if possible. 2. Via a video or written comments, provide an explanation of their work or process. 3. View other's pictures and write comments/kind reactions for learners to see. 4. Respond to other learner's comments and feedback about their own work. 5. On Wednesdays, check for and respond to weekly teacher questions/prompts and read and respond to other learners responses. 6. My Flex classes are very interactive, particularly because students are free to schedule solo or group meeting with me to chat with others or see a live demonstration if they require more assistance.
