Description

Class Experience

The joy that creating provides is something that should be shared and explored by all!

I believe all learning styles can be taught in the same space in most cases and you will find that 99% of my classes are project based for that reason. Putting the learning into the hands of the students helps retention and instills a love of learning. I teach for enjoyment and want my students also enjoying the learning process, you will not find me teaching to a test or requesting memorization of facts. I will find fun and creative ways to get kids learning without them even realizing it most of them time. Some may call it arts and crafts, but I guarantee you your students will love it and they will learn and more importantly retain the information being taught.

I have always felt that art was important. I did not always know how to put it into words necessarily, but I realized early on that it always left me in a better mood than when I started. With our last few years of “social distance” orders, my views on the need for a creative outlet have gone from thinking they are important to knowing they are ESSENTIAL. We need to create our own happiness and when at all possible, share that joy with others. 

While we are all struggling to process our thoughts and fears, our kids are also struggling to put into words what they are feeling. 

ART CAN HELP. 

It can become a way to slowly work through thoughts and feelings. Sometimes feelings are easier expressed in color or shape than in words. And art does not always have to be in the form of a painting or drawing, but a visual representation of what they’re learning. 
Overall, I suggest starting with what you already have on hand. As the student starts to create, you’ll be able to slowly introduce them to new mediums. Students are free to use any medium of their choosing for every single lesson. Required Supplies: ·Quality Art Paper or Sketchbook ·Pencil and Eraser ·Straight Edge or Ruler ·Markers, Gel Pens, Colored Pencils, and or Watercolor or Acrylic Paint ·Black Pen/Marker to Outline with My Favorite Supplies (This list will give you a starting point when you’re ready to explore more supplies. Again, don’t go out and buy everything, think birthday and holiday gifting... Alcohol Based Markers (these are permanent but a great next step for students who want to blend and create bold colors without the paper falling apart on them) https://amzn.to/3Nq7Ij6 Multi-Media Sketchbook (7x10 is my favorite but 9x12 works great too) https://amzn.to/3G6uhab Patterning Illustration Pens (I like the S and XS sizes for intricate patterning) https://amzn.to/39LxmQA Black Marker for Outlining https://amzn.to/3LvW9pj or https://amzn.to/3PAkJbL Large Eraser https://amzn.to/3NsOoSb White Gel Pen (can be used as white out, I often use it for stars or snow) https://amzn.to/3LGB8Iq Shape Stencils Helpful but not required, everything can be done by hand https://amzn.to/3G6RQzz Water Brush Pens are helpful if using watercolor near devices, no need for a large cup of water just a moist paper towel for wiping off on. https://amzn.to/3Lw1Rrf Clear Rulers 6 and 12 inch https://amzn.to/3lQGVAV
