Class Experience

Students will learn how to sketch an ice cream cone and painting techniques to create a three dimensional illusion using tints and shades of hand-mixed color to create light and shadow effects. Students will also learn some differences in types of acrylic brushes and which ones are best for specific parts of our painting.
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 there may be a small section a student needs to finish filling in.  
 1 file available upon enrollment
(Please see the attached PDF with photos of the basic supplies that might help you gather the best materials for this class.) 1 ACRYLIC PAINT SURFACE: 8" x 10" White Canvas (the type that has primed (coated white) canvas stretched over a wooden frame & stapled to the wood on the back is my preferred type - you'll also be able to find some that are stapled to the side of the wood frame. (Other options listed below would work well, too.) Options instead of the 8" x 10" White Stretched Canvas listed above: 8" x 10" Canvas Panel or Canvas Board (It will not be as thick as the stretched canvas and will feel more solid like the canvas is mounted/glued to a stiff cardboard.) OR an 8" x 10" piece of Acrylic Canvas Paper that usually comes in a pad of multiple sheets. ACRYLIC PAINTS: (not tempera, not watercolor, not oil) Each child needs a variety of Acrylic Paint colors. Although the flavor (color) of the ice cream is an individual choice of each student, they will all at least need White & Brown, Gray and/or Black. It's best to also bring a variety of Blue, Green, Red, Yellow, Orange, Purple, & Black (even though your child might not choose to use every color). Store brands in tubes are a good consistency. PAPER PLATE to use as a paint palette. 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) WATER in a metal can, plastic cup or glass jar. PAPER TOWELS
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 and celebrate and encourage each other several times during and at the end of class. 
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
