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. 
Materials will be discussed per student, as mediums are choice based for this course. A suggested list might be: 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 set of quality markers 1 glue stick 1 bottle of white glue 1 pair of scissors 1 set of acrylic paint-warm and color primaries (red, blue, yellow with white and black. ) 1 small brush 1 medium-sized brush 1 large brush 2 pencils and erasers 1 cup for paint water 1 paint shirt one set of multi-colored model magic In addition, we have the option of 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! -Please note that this supply list is not needed for EVERY class. (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 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 teacher will provide any and all additional resources.
