Class Experience

-The student will learn more about using primary color to make other colors and how to make a color lighter or darker in shades.
-Art provides an emotional outlet for kids and decreases stress.
-The student will learn a great deal about observation and noticing detail.
-Students will increase their critical thinking and problem-solving skills 
Homework is prepainting the canvas. And if we are not done painting the flowers at the end of day two, you will want to finish them. You will know how by then.

Materials: (not a lot of stuff. Just me writing about the stuff so you can get the best deal. -My recommendation can help you save money, but you may know of somewhere you can do better than that. I hope so. And if you do, I hope you will share that with me. **Some things I am assuming you have at home. They would be: -Work surface cover, Tweezers, paper towels, hair dryer, q-tips, pencil, and a good eraser **Then: -a pencil to draw the outline of the tree, although I really recommend a piece of white chalk. It shows up well so you can see your line and it wipes away if you goof. - (glue gun) If You have one of any kind, that’s great. If not, you can get them about anywhere. Walmart has some for 2.97. If you are debating what kind, they are a little more expensive (sill under 10.00) is any that has a detailer extension on the tip. I have AdTech mini Hi-temp Detailer. It also comes with 10 glue sticks. I think I paid 8.00 -(glue sticks) I am unsure how many we will need but go with at least a 30 pack. Less than 3.00 at Walmart. You will use a lot of them. -(Canvas panels- You can get the stretched canvas if you like. I personally like it better but the first job, canvas panel board is fine. An 8x10 or 11x14.- Sometimes Dollar Tree has them. They are only a couple of dollars almost anyplace. -(paintbrushes) They don’t have to be good ones. Synthetic is better for acrylics. They hold up better. You can get packs of assorted brushes for $5 or $6. Walmart and Amazon are good for these. We don’t need any big brushes for large areas, but there should be a few good small detail brushes and a couple of flat brushes. The biggest one needed would be to paint the background. -(Paint) For our purpose, some cheap acrylic craft paint is fine. I still use it myself. Very rarely, do I buy the good stuff? The cheapest place to buy it is Walmart in the craft section, that I have found. You can use metallic or gloss. Or use some metallic and some gloss. They are usually under 2.00 a bottle. Whichever you buy, you want non-metallic for the green background. 1 bottle green. Nothing bright. This should be a darker green, but a shade you like. 1 bottle black 1 bottle of either Antique Gold or Pure Gold 1 bottle of white For the blossoms, you will want a few shades. If you like pink, get a few shades or maybe you want pink, blue, or purple. Whatever colors you want, but you want to have a few shades. If you want your clay blossoms to have a yellow center, get a dark yellow. Air-dry clay. Crayola brand. a 5-pound tub is about 6.00 at Walmart or Amazon You can also get some other shades of pink or red if you like to make it easier for a variety of flower shades, but that is up to you. Optional: You don't have to have this right away. But if you want the paint to not peel off, some Mod Podge does wonders.
3 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
parental guidance is using the hot glue gun. I will be teaching them safety when using it, but I think everyone gets the tips of their fingers burned briefly.
