No prior drawing or painting experience needed because I'll be leading each child step-by-step through this painting project even though they will have lots of options to choose from as they create their own painting. As we introduce ourselves, we'll have a little chat about what we like to put in our hot chocolate--perhaps some marshmallows, a peppermint stick, or maybe a dollop of whipped cream! Then I'll show them some of my hot cocoa paintings and explain that I'll be walking them...
I'll be teaching the children a paint sketching technique to use instead of drawing with a pencil for this lesson. Students will also learn about the differences in types of acrylic brushes and how to create a more three dimensional look using painting skills to create light and shadow affects.
We won't have a homework assignment but if your child is not finished painting by the end of our time together, that would be something easily finished even after our class ends. We will have covered all the major steps, but a student may need a little more time after class to finish painting. It's also possible that your child will want to continue creating more paintings of hot chocolate independently after this class and may even be craving one to drink later.
1 file available upon enrollmentACRYLIC PAINTING SUPPLY LIST (It's optional for the students to bring a favorite ceramic mug or cup to class to show us; however, we don't want it to get broken, so we'll leave that up to each family to decide. It's not necessary to bring a mug to class.) ONE 8"x10" White ACRYLIC PAINT SURFACE (See Several Options Below): Stretched Canvas, Canvas Panel/Board, or Acrylic Canvas Paper (What are the differences? . . . Stretched Canvas has primed (coated white) canvas stretched over a wooden frame & stapled to the wood. Canvas Panel/Board feels more solid like the canvas is mounted/glued to a stiff cardboard. Acrylic Canvas Paper is thick, coated paper that is flexible but won't warp and tear as easily as other papers and comes in a pad of multiple sheets.) ACRYLIC PAINTS (not tempera, not watercolor, not oil): I suggest as least 1 ounce of several different colors including Blue, Red, Yellow, White & Black plus also Green, Orange, Purple & Brown although your child may not choose to use all of the colors. (Thicker acrylic paint in tubes are the best consistency for our painting techniques. If possible, try to avoid using the thinner acrylics in plastic bottles that sound watery when shaken.) PAPER PLATE to use as a paint palette. (Optional to use a plastic paint palette instead or even a disposable pie tin) ACRYLIC PAINT BRUSHES in a variety of sizes. Include a couple of medium size ROUGH Flat Brushes (looks like a square on the tip but bristles are rough and a little prickly to the touch. Also include a couple of very small SMOOTH Acrylic Brushes (1 very small Round brush like a pencil tip shape and 1 slender Flat Square Shape) Please avoid brushes that are flimsy and bend when put under a stream of water. (Those are watercolor brushes instead of acrylic brushes.) WATER in a metal can, plastic cup or glass jar. PAPER TOWELS Please also see the attached photo to see both types of acrylic brushes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment; however, we will take the time to hold up our paintings several times during and at the end of class to celebrate and encourage each other's progress and results.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
