Art Class: Drawing & Painting Pets for Young Artists

Susan Garrison
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(70)
In this art class, we'll learn how to draw and paint popular pets with a lesson on a different animal each week.

Class experience

Students will learn how to draw a variety of animals in this class as well as learn some interesting facts about our animal topic of the day.  They will also learn drawing, shading and textural techniques and how to create a balanced composition while keeping the animal at the focal point.
Most of our classes will be drawing lessons in which we begin with a pencil and then add color as time allows.  I've also listed some painting materials because we will occasionally be painting.  I'll be sure to make a post in our classroom page several days before each class about which supplies we will need for the upcoming class.  Always assume it's the Drawing Supplies if you don't see a post about anything different to bring to class.

paper (sketchbook or drawing paper)
coloring tools (crayons, colored pencils or twistables)
Tip:  Markers can give bold color but are not well-suited for blending & shading, 
so I don't recommend them for our lessons.  

Paper (newsprint, regular drawing paper, or pastel paper)
Kneaded Eraser  (a special pliable kind used with charcoal)
Vine or Willow Charcoal ROUND Sticks (not charcoal pencils)

pencil, eraser, sharpener
9" x 12" Watercolor Paper (or similar size)
A set of Watercolor Paints (just a simple set of 12 or 24 colors
A few Watercolor Paint Brushes in different sizes
Water in an open cup, can or jar
Paper Towels
Oil Pastels in a variety of colors (be sure they are not the type that can be blended with water--it would say it on the package if it is)
Optional Substitution:  (If your child does not already have a set of oil pastels, crayons could be used instead.)


ONE 8"x10" White ACRYLIC PAINT SURFACE (See Several Options Below):
Stretched Canvas, Canvas Panel/Board, or Acrylic Canvas Paper
(What are the differences? . . . Stretched Canvas has primed (coated white) canvas stretched over a wooden frame & stapled to the wood.  Canvas Panel/Board feels more solid like the canvas is mounted/glued to a stiff cardboard.  Acrylic Canvas Paper is thick, coated paper that is flexible but won't warp and tear as easily as other papers and comes in a pad of multiple sheets.) 

ACRYLIC PAINTS:   (not tempera, not watercolor, not oil)
I suggest as least 1 ounce of several different colors including Blue, Red, Yellow, White & Black plus also Green, Orange, Purple & Brown although your child may not choose to use all of the colors.  (Thicker acrylic paint in tubes are the best consistency for our painting techniques.  If possible, try to avoid using the thinner acrylics in plastic bottles that sound watery when shaken.)  

PAPER PLATE to use as a paint palette. (Optional to use a plastic paint palette instead or even a disposable pie tin)

ACRYLIC PAINT BRUSHES in a variety of sizes.  Include a couple of medium size ROUGH Flat Brushes (looks like a square on the tip but bristles are rough and a little prickly to the touch.  Also include a couple of very small SMOOTH Acrylic Brushes (1 very small Round brush like a pencil tip shape and 1 slender Flat Square Shape)  Please avoid brushes that are flimsy and bend when put under a stream of water. (Those are watercolor brushes instead of acrylic brushes.)

WATER in a metal can, plastic cup or glass jar.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
