Class Experience

The learners will have a better understanding of the history of the art forms as well as learning how to use those art forms as a way to express their emotions.
I have taken many classes that have incorporated visual art and writing. Also, through my literature degree, I have done expensive research on art history as to have a better understanding of the pieces of literature. I will be using my knowledge in art history and creative writing as a way of showing the learners how they can express themselves through art.
All of the activities will be done individually. There will be only one homework assignment in the third week which will be explained in the class. 
All supplies will be posted in the classroom.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I want the learners to feel comfortable and see it as a place they can safely share their feelings. One thing I will not tolerate in this class is any bullying or any negative talk. This isn't a class to improve skills but a class in which learners can learn to use art to express their emotions. Do note this is zero tolerance.
I will provide reading materials as needed. I will have the needed materials for each week posted in the classroom but please note that the learners will need art materials. For week 1,2 and 5, the learners will need to have some kind of paper or notebook to make their art as well as the materials to create it (they can chose which ever medium they like best such as colored pencils, chalk, paints, charcoal, etc) as well as something they can see themselves in (can be a phone or a mirror). For week 3, they will need a material to create their sculpture (clay, play-doh, wire, etc.). Week 4 they will need to have their found materials ( this will be explained when the assignment is posted in the classroom.) All these materials needed each week will be posted in the classroom as well as reiterated at the end of each session.
