In this one-time class, I'll lead the students step-by-step through a mixed media process of drawing and painting a beautiful vase of a variety of flowers. Although I'll be demonstrating each step and painting along with the students, they will still have lots of choices throughout the lesson including the colors they use and even the shape and style of their vase. No prior drawing or painting experience needed. We'll chat about our favorite flowers as we introduce ourselves and settle...
Students will learn how to design their own vase and the drawing steps of creating a variety of flowers. 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 practicing more vases of flowers independently after our class. 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. I'll be sure we have made it through every instructional step even if your child may have some background color to finish painting after our time together.
pencil, eraser, sharpener 9" x 12" Watercolor Paper (or similar size) A set of Watercolor Paints (just a simple set of 12 or 24 colors A few Watercolor Paint Brushes in different sizes 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. I'll watch for individual needs for extra tips to share.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
