Class Experience

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!
>or Canson Mixed Media Spiral 9 X 12 on Amazon. $7.97
2. Scissors
3. Glue Stick
4. Ultra Fine Sharpies for Doodling
5. *Optional - any color/pattern scrapbook paper for adding color to the journal

For the art project:
6. Watercolor paper 9 X 12 (I will be cutting them in half so they can clip into our journal neatly.)  
7. Watercolors
8. Paint Brush
9. Water cup
10. 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 black pen (Ultra fine black Sharpie or Micron are great!)

Some kids have put all the journal entry information on one side of the journal and paint the cactus on the other side.  This turns out great too! Just make sure if you paint in your journal - it’s made for paint - like a watercolor journal. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
