Hello space lovers and learners! I am so excited to learn about our solar system while creating art with you. Class begins with introductions and time for learners to share things they know about NASA, space, our planets, the Milky Way, other galaxies and more. Sometimes I even tell a space joke or two! Next, learners will make sure they have their paper or crafting supplies ready to go. Learners may draw using pencils, colored pencils, markers or crayons. If your learner prefers painting...
Students will have a fun time drawing while also learning about our solar system! We will learn about each planet (or star) as we draw it. What are its defining features? Are they hot or cold? Terrestrial or gas? Craters? Rocky or sandy? Learners will also have the opportunity to socialize with other like-minded peers, share ideas, take turns and practice online class etiquette.
I am a STEM educator with experience teaching students of all ages both in person and online.
No homework is assigned. Students are encouraged to continue their drawing, paintings or models and upload photographs of their finished pieces in the Outschool classroom for all to see.
Students need at least 2 pieces of computer sized paper taped together to draw on and any sort of art supplies they would like to use. I recommend colored pencils, crayons or fine tipped markers. If your learner wants to paint or sculpt, please provide the proper paint or clay. I recommend an air dry clay (like Model Magic) or polymer clay (like Sculpey) that needs to be baked to harden.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
