Art Class: The Wonderful World of Watercolor Painting! From the Basics to Beyond

Many kids use watercolors to simply fill big areas of color, as if they were liquid crayons - but watercolors are so much more than that! Over 7 process-oriented weeks, learners will explore the many possibilities of this versatile medium.

Class Experience

Learners will gain familiarity with watercolor - an understanding of how to use it and what they can do with it! 
I'm a teaching artist (BFA/MAT) and illustrator/bookmaker with almost 25 years of experience working with kids of all ages! One of my favorite things about teaching is watching kids explore and make discoveries, and creating a space for them to do so. I've worked in schools, museums, private & homeschool groups, and libraries, facilitating kids' artmaking.
No homework, but students are always welcome to post artwork in the classroom between sessions as a running art gallery!
I will post a detailed supply list with suggestions in the classroom, but you'll need a pencil, watercolor PAN set (the classroom type - not an expensive art-store set, though I have brand recommendations; I prefer Prang) and paintbrushes, watercolor paper, scotch tape and a handful of other things you should be able to find lying around the house. If you are purchasing all new things, you can expect to spend $20ish for decent paints, brushes and paper.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Although I'll try to help them minimize any mess, you may wish to have a layer of something underneath their work surface, as they will sometimes go off the edges of their watercolor paper (eg, a few sheets of larger drawing paper, or a placemat or plastic bag).

We may use scissors on the last day.
