How Outschool Works

You can request another time or scroll down to find more classes like this.
No prior drawing or painting experience needed because I'll be leading each child step-by-step through each part of our snowman project. We'll chat about snowmen as we introduce ourselves and see if any of the children have ever built one out of snow. I'll even share my own experience building snowmen to help them imagine some of their possibilities as they draw and paint their own snowman scene. However, snowman-building experience is not necessary to be successful in this class. ...
Students will learn how to draw a snowman scene and will be encouraged to personalize their own unique piece of artwork with several options throughout our process. They will also learn a mixed media process of using pencils, oil pastels and watercolor paints and the reasons these products work well together for our project.
No homework necessary, but your child might enjoy painting some more snowman scenes independently. Also, if your child did not finish the painting step of our project while in our class, that could be easily finished after our time together ends. Occasionally, if our class has only 1 student, we might finish just a few minutes early depending on the pace of the child. However, most of the time we need a full hour of class time.
1 file available upon enrollmentpencil, eraser, sharpener 9" x 12" Watercolor Paper (or similar size such as 8" x 10") A set of Watercolor Paints (just a simple set of 12 or 24 colors) A few Watercolor Paint Brushes in different sizes (Watercolor Brushes are extremely soft--the bristles bend when put under a stream of water) Oil Pastels in a variety of colors (be sure they are not the type that can be blended with water--it would say it on the package if it is) Water in an open cup, can or jar Paper Towels Optional Substitution: (If your child does not already have a set of oil pastels, crayons could be used instead.)
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 show each other our artwork several times throughout the class to celebrate and encourage each other's progress and results. I'll watch for the opportunity to share any extra tips needed throughout our lesson.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
