Class Experience

Students will learn about six major artists, art movements, and/ or art cultures including the Renaissance, Op Art, and Pop Art.  Students will also learn how to manipulate at grade appropriate levels various art media as described in the weekly breakdown including ceramics, graphic design, illustration, and painting.  Finally, students will learn how to use sketchbooks as brainstorming and media practicing tools.
Each project is designed to meet (a) particular art standard(s) for most U.S. states for fifth and sixth grade.  I have taught as a certified art teacher each project numerous times as various schools.  

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts Education and have been working as a professional educator since 2008.  I am certified by the state of Indiana to teach preschool through 12th grade art and am certified in action-based learning.
Most projects will be completed in class.  However, whatever parts of the project are not finished in class may need to be completed outside of class before the class begin.  After class each week, the teacher will post what needs to be completed by the next week.
Needed supplies include a 8.5x11” or 9x12” sketchbook or mixed media book, a pocket folder to store projects, colored pencils, acrylic or tempera paint (various colors), paint brushes, a paper plate or paint palette, a ruler with a metal edge, an Xacto knife (optional), 1 pound of air dry clay, access to a printer and to a computer with internet access, glue, scissors, an old hardcover book with at least a one-inch spine, colored markers (optional), and 9x12” colored/ construction paper (optional).  Most supplies can be purchased at local department stores for a much cheaper price than an art supply store. A photo of the supplies will be posted to the class page.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
As the class is designed for lower middle school art, no grades will be given.  However, students will still need to meet project requirements and will participate in project critiques.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
For the Pop Art prints project, we will be using, a free online software that requires no account or download and is COPPA compliant.  We will use Pixlr to edit selfies to create a print.  Since Pixlr is free, ads do pop up on the screen, but the ads are not inappropriate.
