Class Experience

Student will learn to blend 2-3 colors to create this elephant, learning to dip their brush into one color at a time and blend directly on their paper.  We will use our black paint and a loose hand to create and 'sketchy' outline when we are finished.  A background can be painted if the student has time, or can be completed after class.

In my "Art2Learn" classes, I share other information with the students and include other disciplines.  In this class, students will learn some facts about the baby elephant and I will show the students where these animals live in the world, on a map or globe.
-palette for paint  (foam plate, parchment paper, etc. will work)

**BASIC CLASS NOTES** (Please read)

I begin on time.  If a student is late, they will need to jump in and catch up as they are able.  I cannot re-start the class for each late arrival.  You may request a recording of the class if child arrives late or ends up being unable to attend.

{If a PAINTING class has a drawing or element to print out and trace, please have this done BEFORE the start of class (it will be posted in the classroom several hours before start of class). For these classes, we will not be taking the time to draw that element in class, but will begin with painting our piece, so the student will be woefully behind and unable to get the painting instruction needed if not done before class.  They are welcome to draw their own version of what I post, but need to do so before start of that class as we will begin painting when class begins.}

I encourage creativity and self-expression.  Students may veer from what I am doing to find their own 'voice'.  Also, I encourage interaction during class (please be polite by sharing talk time and muting when there is background noise in the home).  Otherwise, I welcome questions as we go along and open mics.

If your student enjoys this art time and would like to attend my art clubs, please look for these on Outschool or message me for times that might suit better, now that school has begun.  

I soooo look forward to seeing your child in class.
The day before class, I will email a basic drawing outline that students use to lightly sketch the baby elephant onto their watercolor page.  This will afford us the entire class time for painting.
-Watercolor paper (I encourage the Canson XL Series Watercolor Paper, Wire Bound, 140 Pound, 9 x 12 Inch, 30 Sheets...or there is a smaller 7x10 size available. It can be used as an art journal for various classes, but pages are perforated and can be removed easily for framing, if desired. You can find these journals at your local Michael or on Amazon... ) -acrylic paint in white, black, + several colors of choice. (I used white, black, blue and another color can be used for 'highlights' and interest, such as pink, yellow, or lime green.) - 1/2"-1" flat paint brush - water dish -palette for paint (foam plate, parchment paper, etc. will work) - old rag + paper towels *** I will send a simple drawing ahead that can be printed and traced onto student's paint surface. The above video will show how to trace the drawing onto the student's paper to be ready to paint.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
