Class experience

Students will improve their understanding of basic color blending techniques and shadowing techniques.
Students will improve their understanding of different ways to use a brush when painting.
Students will be able to discuss some of the animals that represent the fall season.
I have been painting and creating artwork for many years. I have also been teaching elementary school aged kids for over four years. I have used acrylic paints with my students in my own classroom.
Learners will need acrylic paint in the following colors:
-Blue (I use "Primary Blue" by Liquitex)
-White (I use "Titanium White" by Liquitex)
-Black (I use "Mars Black" by Liquitex)
-Crimson Red (I use "Alizarin Crimson Hue" by Liquitex)
-Orange (I use "Cadmium Orange Hue" by Liquitex)
-Yellow (I use "Cadmium Yellow Deep Hue" by Liquitex)

Learners will need also need:
-A canvas or heavy mixed media paper. I will be using a smaller square canvas, but any size canvas or paper will be okay.
-Two flat paint brushes: one larger, and one smaller. Any brand is okay. 
-A cup for water to clean your brushes.
-A paint palette, or a paper plate to use as a paint palette. Acrylic paint can stain, so don't use a regular plate.
-3 q-tips or cotton swabs
-An easel is optional! If you chooses to paint without an easel, make sure to have a flat surface that is protected by paper towels, newspaper, or butcher's paper.

You can buy the canvases, the paints, and the supplies at the art supply stores (Michael's or Jo-Ann's), or in bulk on Amazon. Please allow time for shipping if you choose to shop online.

Paint Brush Tips: Sometimes the brush hairs come out of new brushes when you paint, so I recommend "water painting" a cardboard box or a paper plate. You can wet the brush and swirl it around, tap it, and do brush strokes with the brush to get out any lose bristles before you paint. It is also important to clean your brushes and let them dry properly after painting so that they work properly next time.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parental supervision or guidance is suggested for inexperienced or younger learners. Acrylic paint will wash off of skin and surfaces such as tables, but it will stain clothing. It is suggested that your learner wear clothing that you don't mind getting paint on, and that your learner is in an area that can be wiped down. I suggest putting newspaper or paper towels under the area where your learner will paint in case of spills.
