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, and I have taught children and adults how to paint different pictures at birthday parties.
-Acrylic Paint in a Variety of Colors: I recommend a variety pack to start with, or at least the primary colors and some neutral colors. Students sometimes have favorites, and they can always add to their paint supply as they find what they like. **I really love acrylic paint pens for rock painting, and kids love to use them since they are a little easier to manage. If you get the paint pens, you don't need brushes.**

-Paint brushes in various sizes: everything from very fine size 1/8 to larger size 10. Most of the time I recommend using flat brushes.

-Canvases: any size 11 x 14 or smaller should be fine. For some paintings, I may suggest smaller canvases. The smallest that we will work with is 4 x 4.
*OR*
-As an alternative to using a canvas, painters may choose to paint on mixed media paper or other thick painting paper. That is perfectly fine as well! Some painters prefer canvas, and some prefer paper. It is really up to you!

-A hairdryer is not necessary, but will speed up drying time if your learner uses a lot of paint or very wet paint.

I recommend using the brands Liquitex or Arteza for your paint as the quality is a little better but they are still priced well. Brands such as Craftsmart are okay too, but they are a little thinner and sometimes require more paint when making your masterpiece.

There are many good canvases and thick papers that you can choose from. The basic sets from the art supply store are usually good! You can usually find the paint, brushes, paper, and canvases at Michael's or JoAnn's. Amazon and some other online sites have some supplies as well, but please allow time for shipping if you choose to shop online.

**Your learner may use different styles of paint (tempera, craft, washable, etc.), but be aware that different types of paint do not always work the same way. If different styles are used, the results will vary.**
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will have a new masterpiece to share each week.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
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.
