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 will depend on what we accomplish in class. It would mostly be finishing coats of paint, drying the canvas.
 2 files available upon enrollment
Materials: (not a lot of stuff. Just me writing about the stuff so you can get the best deal. The list is for all days combined. -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: - (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. -(Canvas panels- 1 8x8, 1 8x10- or something close to those sizes) They can get stretched canvas later if they become more serious. If they want those for this and you are fine with it, that is fine with me. I’m happy either way. If you have a Dollar tree, they have canvas and all the sizes you need. Michaels has them for less than 2.00. Good deals can be gotten other places as well like Hobby Lobby, but they come in sets -(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. If the students later want to seriously pursue painting, then it will be time for better brushes. -(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 that I have found. We will be using mostly metallic paints. Small 2-ounce bottles. All 2-ounce bottles at Walmart are 1.97 per bottle. In metallic (FolkArt): 2 bottles Sequin black 1 bottle of either Antique Gold, Pure Gold, or Rose Gold 1 each of Pearl white, Emerald Green, Blue Sapphire 1 bottle of Bright Red OR Sparkling Fuchsia 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. (If you can’t get metallic, Enamel is the next best thing and still 1.97 a bottle. It has gloss and sticks to glue surface better than regular gloss paint. However, if doing 1.97 a bottle is still horrible, just get gloss for everything. We will make do. Gloss is about 1.00 a bottle but more layers will need to be added to the glue and it could peel off.)
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.
