How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
Artists will meet each week to compose a fun and colorful piece. We will use paints, markers, and other materials you probably have at home already like a Q-tip, muffin tin or coffee filters to create vibrant, energetic, and individual creations. After quick hellos and introductions, we will get right to work. It may be a bit messy, but it's gonna be fun! I will guide students throughout the class and they will be able to see my artwork as a reference. One week we may be diffusing colors on...
My goal is for artists to create beautiful and brilliant compositions using different media and fun techniques; to inspire them to try more on their own; and, for them to return to the studio for something new the following week!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and have enjoyed working with vibrant colors through markers, paints, and chalk pastels. My personal style is more abstract, graphic, and even impressionistic and this is reflected in my own painting style over the years. I enjoy the spontaneity of these creative painting projects and there is no better group of learners to do this with than the younger set!
Specifically for the week of Sept 26th: This week you will need: - Mixed media/art paper- - Black/brown Crayon or oil pastel - Watercolors- any kind of watercolor will work. I may be using liquid ones, but you do not have to. Here are some liquid watercolors I love IF you want to try them: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005KFTW40/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - Paper towels or old towel - Brushes - Cup of water - Printer paper and markers (we may need) ************************ The following supplies are used frequently: Mixed Media paper, or other art paper (paper that holds up to water and paint) Tempera or Acrylic paints Liquid Watercolors Thick Crayola washable markers Brushes in a few different widths Old towel or paper towels Plates Little cups The following are used at times, depending on the project: Crayons- a rainbow of colors, especially black Cotton String Spray bottle White Coffee filters Large tray or tin baker as a tray Q-tips and rubber bands Forks Straws Marbles Cookie cutters Construction paper **You do not need to go and buy all of this right away, but we will be using these supplies throughout the class on different weeks. Specific supplies are outlined in a Google doc you will see upon enrollment. Please sign up for classroom emails for yourself and your learner to ensure you see the latest information quickly. Thank you!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Throughout the class, I will have artists share their work with me to see their progress and ask questions as they arise.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
