In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This is not a course for written grades. I stay positive while also offering constructive advice on how they could take their project to the next level. In every lesson, I teach and encourage every artist to make the art their very own. So I encourage them to add some extras, draw and paint in their own style, and let them know their artwork does not have to look like mine! My feedback is only ever positive and encouraging! Students will leave my class feeling empowered, encouraged and I am sure they will be eager to watercolor paint more!

Learners will interact with each other and the teacher through the classroom page via chat messaging, discussions about the lesson, posting a photo of their artwork, answering the key question for the lesson that week and student collaborative artboard.  I will provide encouragement and positive feedback on their artwork and guide the students in classroom discussion topics. The artwork deadlines will be the following week- the day before the next lesson is uploaded to the classroom wall.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Nearpod platform will be utilized for extra student interaction in addition to the classroom page.  A link along with an access code will be provided in the Outschool classroom related to each week's flex lesson.  The access code I provide will take them directly to lessons.

Some other websites will be used as a knowledge base in addition to my watercolor painting instruction.  These websites will be just one part of the interactive material accessed thru Nearpod:
~ "Connecticut Science Center” channel YouTube:  How to change the Color of the World Around You
~ "Margie Samuels Watercolor” channel YouTube:   Learn how to clean your watercolor brushes.
~ "Scholastic Kids” website:  Learn the latest from Wings of Fire Book Series
~ "The Kids Should See This” website:  Explore painting dragons with a single twisting brush stroke
