Class Experience

My classes are designed and taught so that students will be able to understand and apply the elements of art and the principles of design through painting.  Using their color mixing and color theory skills, students will create original works of art of increasing complexity and skill in a variety of media that reflect their feelings and points of view.  

Overall, participating in this series of 6 art classes, my students will have improved their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, enhanced focus, visual and spatial relationship skills and feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.  

Creating original art will build confidence, nurture innate creativity and right-brain activity, thus enhancing academic performance.  All wonderful outcomes from a simple series of art classes with me!

Students will be able to:

- know the color terms: color wheel, primary colors, secondary colors, complimentary colors, tint, and shade.
- understand color theory well enough to create any color they want
- be able to mix paints to create secondary colors, tints and shades
- paint a color wheel using their understanding of color theory
- paint four different types of paintings applying their knowledge and skills of color mixing and theory
- will be exposed and learn about a range of artists whose styles reflect and inspire the art lessons and art projects that the students will create.
I am offering this Flexible Schedule class because I love art and color in all of it's forms and introducing my students to the magic of making art brings me much joy.  I love creating something beautiful that didn’t exist ever before!  I have been making art since I was three-years old and grew up in a home environment where creativity was a way of life.  

I’ve always been creative and interested in colors, textures, textiles, fashion design and traveling the globe appreciating diverse cultures.  I am inspired by nature, the cosmos and color most of all!  To me, making art, expressing myself creatively and teaching others to do that, are as natural as breathing.  Kids of all ages love my inspired, relaxed and energetic style of teaching art.

I look forward to having the opportunity to meet and create art together.

1. Complete independent practice of class assignments painting projects on a weekly basis.  

2. Students are asked to participate in the weekly discussion post, share their artwork/project 

To observe color in our natural world, the world around found in the garden, the park, the neighborhood and other natural spaces and be able to identify color varieties and discuss back in class. 

Additional optional art activity: sketching outdoors while observing natural elements rich with color, i.e. flowers, trees, the sky etc.
