Class experience

This class is taught in English.
~Students will learn how to paint with acrylic paint, the teacher will use basic art vocabulary while explaining the steps. Students will learn how to paint on canvas, follow step by step instructions, use their imaginations and creativity, and have fun! 
~This class is for budding artists who know that art isn't about making an exact replica of the teacher's art piece.  
~Due to the variety of skill sets in the class, I try to pace the class to meet all students' needs, but this isn't always possible. 
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts as well as an Art teaching credential. I have a Masters in Education and over twenty years experience teaching Art.
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
Informal assessment of art piece.
Grades Offered
A canvas or canvas paper for each week you paint with me.
A 9x12 canvas is recommended. The lessons are geared to a canvas of this size. Larger canvases will take longer and students with larger canvases may fall behind and have to finish their painting after class on their own. 
Acrylic paint-students are always free to make color changes. 
Red, Yellow, and Blue are primary colors and cannot be mixed. White is a neutral and cannot be mixed. It is preferable to use black from the tube or bottle.
It is recommended to have red, yellow, blue, white and black on hand at a minimum. 
A variety of different sizes of paint brushes.
Paper towel
Cup of clean water for rinsing between colors
Palette or Paper plate 

*Table top easel is fine but not necessary.    

Painting flat on a table may be easier for some students. 

Please position ALL supplies on same side of table next to the hand you paint with.
Depending on easel/table painting: 
Computer/device should be faced directly ahead OR on the opposite side of painting hand for head-on viewing of the painting steps.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This is class is direct instruction with some room for free expression. I do not coerce participation; learners can choose to participate as much or as little as they desire. 

Students are also free to ask questions and make comments at any point. Some of my classes are very talkative and some of my classes are really quiet. It really depends on the dynamic of the group. I also don’t force learners to “follow along”, however, many of my learners appreciate the structure my lessons provide. Ultimately, it’s up to your learner to decide exactly how they want their art to turn out.

This class is geared towards beginners, however, intermediate students are welcome!

*Acrylic paint does not wash off clothing so you may want to provide a large oversized t-shirt, apron or smock for your learner to wear.
