Class Experience

Students will learn a variety of basic watercolor techniques as well as introductory color theory through painting exercises that we will complete together. We'll also cover the importance of clean-up and taking care of your brushes. 
No homework, but hopefully learners will continue to experiment with their watercolor paints.
Learners will need a few sheets of watercolor paper (any size will work, though larger tends to be easier. Watercolor paper absorbs water and paint faster than regular drawing paper, so I do recommend watercolor paper -- any brand is fine -- over drawing paper for this class), a watercolor paint set (again, any brand will work but ideally will contain red, yellow, blue, white, and black), one or two brushes of different sizes (the brush that comes in the kit is totally fine, and the class can be completed with one brush), a cup or dish for rinsing their brush, and a flat surface for painting (watercolor tends to be an easier cleanup, but can sometimes get messy). Learners may also want a paper towel nearby in case of spills.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No assessment, but hopefully learners will have fun exploring what they can do with watercolor.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
