Learners will have the option to complete their project after class and are encouraged to bring it to the next class to share what they made. They can post their projects in the classroom as a virtual gallery will grow throughout the weeks. 
-Please note that this supply list is not needed for EVERY class. 

I will send out a weekly email which will indicate the project we are working on and the supplies needed. Supplies that need to be  purchased will last well beyond the projects assigned. If you have a small amount of any of the supplies below, it will probably be enough to complete the project. I am doing my best to your supply list a one time investment that will last. I tried to make a list of the supplies that most students need in an typical art classroom with budget in mind. 

1 package of construction paper
1 small stack of cardstock thick paper for drawing
1 box of craypas (16 color recommended) 
2 glue sticks (in case one goes missing! : ) 
1 bottle of white glue
1 pair of scissors
1 tray of at least 8 watercolors 
1 small watercolor brush
1 medium watercolor brush
1 large watercolor brush
1 (suggested example) 
1 set of markers with black 
2 pencils and erasers
1 cup for paint water 
1 paint shirt
3 scanes/partial of different color yarn. (Any ole scrap yarn will do! differences in thickness and color are recommended)
1 order of crayola model magic-

In addition, we will be using upcycled material: thin cardboard, food packaging, junk mail- anything paper that you might throw in the recycle bin can be used for at least two of our projects. Start collecting ASAP so you have a lot to choose from!  

(If parents need Amazon links to the above supplies, I am happy to provide.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Ms. Amy Pollman is certified Visual Arts Instructor K-12, as such if you desire assessment for your learner, such can be arranged. Otherwise this course is self assessed. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class can be messy. Please be advised that your learner needs a studio friendly space to work in studio friendly clothing. We will use white glue and scissors, markers, model magic clay, paint and oil pastels. Please be sure you are giving your child children's scissors to work with so they do not harm themselves accidentally. Safety first in the classroom : ) We also will be discussing cultures from around the world and history. I do my best to be as inclusive as possible. I insist on mutual respect to all members who participate (student to teacher and student to student) in the class. The goal of this class is to expand global understanding and be introduced to different cultures through art making.
The teacher will provide any and all additional resources.
