Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
My mission for all of my classes is that every learner has the opportunity to be creative. I believe creativity is so important, and I want to give students the chance to express themselves in a safe and comfortable environment. The goal is for each student in this particular class to complete an entire acrylic painting of their pet, and learn about techniques and the brushes we use during class. 
I have a BA in Art - Concentration in Drawing and Painting. I have been teaching art at the professional level for the last 8 years. I love to work on painting in my free time, and I illustrate children's books! 
1-2 hours of homework a week will be expected outside of class time. Each student will be working on their own painting and will post updates on THURSDAYS of each class week. Students will be paired up with an art buddy in class and will be responsible for giving constructive feedback to their art buddy during the week. 
Learners will need a couple of supplies for painting. If you already have some supplies feel free to use what you have! You WILL need acrylic paints, brushes, and a canvas to complete this artwork! Canvas - I recommend a 16x20in canvas for this project, but feel free to choose your own size Acrylic Paints in Your Pet's Colors - Normally white, black, a couple of brown shades, and whatever color you would like for your background. I will let you know what exact colors are needed once the students have picked out their pet reference photos. Every pet is different so each student will need different paint colors. 1in. Square Brush A couple of smaller brushes - I prefer a mix of square and round brushes Paper Plate (or something to use as a paint pallet) Cup of Water Paper Towels Pencil Stick of Graphite (or Graphite Paper) A printed image of your pet, the same size as your canvas. These prints can normally be made very cheaply at any office supply store. Most supplies can also be purchased at your local grocery or art store, please let me know if you have any questions or need help with supplies!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be evaluated by the teacher informally each week at each new stage of the painting. I will be assessing if they can make any adjustments to improve their artwork. I will have constructive, positive feedback for each student every week. I encourage creativity, so each painting will be unique, but I will be providing feedback to help each student create the best painting possible!
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Acrylic paints can be hard to get off of furniture and out of clothing. Please make sure students have a space to work that is ok to get a bit messy. I recommend wearing old clothes that you won't mind if they get a little paint on them. Acrylic does come off of hair and skin with just a little soap and water.
