Class Experience

Learners will have detailed knowledge about each species we discuss. 
-Scientific name, native area, special features, bloom information, growth details, sun and water needs, the care needed for summer vs. winter, and more. 

-Watercolor blending techniques to create depth and darker shadows depending on where the light source in coming from. 

-Using ink to add fine details to our art work. 
For the journal:
1. Watercolor or mixed media paper spiral. We will not be painting in these, but the glue and pen marks do best with thicker paper.
The two types below I have used and love.
>Yitai Watercolor Spiral 9 X 12 on Amazon. Pack of 2 is $13.99 and its a hard cover which is nice!
>Canson Mixed Media Spiral 9 X 12 on Amazon. $7.97
2. Scissors
3. Glue Stick
4. Ultra Fine Sharpies for Doodling

For the art project:
5. Watercolor paper 9 X 12 (I will be cutting them in half so they can clip into our journal neatly.)  
6. Watercolors
7. Paint Brush
8. Water cup
9. Paper towel
10. Uni-Ball UM 153 Signo Broad Point Gel Pen - White (These are amazing at adding white spines and the cactus details)
11. Fine detail waterproof black pen (Ultra fine black Sharpie or Micron are great!)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
