Are you curious about what it is like to be an artist? Do you wonder where artists find their inspirations? Do you like learning about the stories behind an artwork? In this ongoing club we will explore the world of famous artists. We will cover a diverse group of artists and a wide range of time periods. Each week will be a new art history adventure!

-Students will become familiar with the art and style of a wide variety of famous artists. -Students will explore the elements of art through investigating masterpieces and creating their own artworks. -Students will gain a mastery of essential art techniques and vocabulary such as: landscape, seascape, foreground, background, still life, horizon line, pattern, color mixing, watercolor resist, tints, shades, and overlapping.
I have taught elementary art for over 16 years and each of my lessons is developed thoughtfully and practiced ahead of time keeping in mind student skill level and interests. I am passionate about helping young artists find their unique artistic voices, and therefore I balance guided drawing with creative expression in this lesson. I aim to provide positive encouragement to students throughout our class time, and truly hope they enjoy our art club projects each week!
Students may wish to continue adding finishing touches after class time has ended.
Please have the following supplies ready for each art class: - 9x12 Thicker white paper or watercolor paper (80lb weight or higher; I like Canson (100510941) XL Series Watercolor Pad, 9" x 12", Fold-Over Cover, 30 Sheets. A thick construction paper or card stock should be ok as well.) - Pencil with eraser - Black permanent Sharpie marker (must be a permanent marker) - Oil pastels - Crayons - Watercolor set (Prang or Crayola recommended) - Watercolor brush - Container with water (a container with a wider base or a bowl is less likely to spill) - Paper towels **You may also want a piece of poster board or large paper to cover the work area.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
