In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Creativity is a very personalized process, I encourage my students to take "Progress photos" so that when done, they can look back at how they transformed a black canvas into a painting. These photos are a great visual documentation of their learning. In a year or 5 years, they can look back at their photos and realize how far their skills have come. Thus boosting their morale/ self-esteem to do more creative things.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Lovejoy will share a step-by-step video in lecture/discussion style through Zoom. (this is a slideshow with images and pre-recorded video to show the steps) The class will progress together through the 60 minutes with questions answered as they come up. There will be a few times that Lovejoy will ask all the students to hold up their paintings to the camera so she can see everyone's progress, as well as the students seeing others' work and giving encouraging feedback.
