Class Experience

Students will practice drawing or painting in a style inspired by the Expressionist painter Franz Marc, and will create a scene that exhibits movement, contrasting colors, and flattened space. 
I have taught guided drawing lessons in my classes for at least the past ten years!  This style of painting or drawing is very accessible, and my students are often pleasantly surprised at how well their artwork turns out.  My demonstration is easy to follow, but still allows students to experiment and add a personal touch to their work.  I love the bright colors and free-spirited abstraction of this project, and I hope that your learners enjoy it as much as I do!
Some students may wish to continue adding finishing touches after class time had ended.

This project may be created with either drawing or painting supplies! The use of either will result in a beautiful artwork, so it is entirely the artist's preference which one to use, although drawing is recommended for beginners. I will include both options below. ****My preferred materials for this project are oil pastels on colored construction paper, but if supplies are limited, it can also be created using crayons or colored pencils on white paper, or acrylic paints on white or colored paper (or canvas). Drawing supply list: - Black or dark blue paper (around 9x12") - Oil pastels (recommend Pentel or Cray-Pas, both available on Amazon, or at art supply stores for under $10) Painting supply list: - Canvas or thick paper, around 9x12" Both canvases and watercolor pads are available from Amazon or at art supply stores, for under $10. - Acrylic paints or craft paints (available from Amazon or at art supply stores, for under $10). Colors needed include: white, black, blue, green, yellow, orange & red. - Paint brush(es), small/medium in size (available from Amazon or at art supply stores, for under $5) - water cup, paper plate (for mixing colors), paper towels
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Younger students may require assistance setting up (or cleaning up) art materials.
