Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
My mission for all of my classes is that every learner has the opportunity to be creative. I believe creativity is so important, and I want to give students the chance to express themselves in a safe and comfortable environment. The goal is for each student in this particular class to learn about acrylic techniques and brushes to gain the confidence to create their own amazing artwork at home.
I have a BA in Art - Concentration in Drawing and Painting. I have been teaching art at the professional level for the last 8 years. I love to work on painting in my free time, and I illustrate children's books! 
No homework will be assigned, but if students would like more time to work on their artwork, they are always welcome to paint after class. 
Learners will need a couple of supplies for painting. If you already have some supplies feel free to use what you have! You WILL need paints, brushes, and some canvases to complete this class. For this class, I like canvas paper. It's thinner and cheaper than purchasing traditional canvases. I think it's perfect for practicing techniques. If you would like to use a regular canvas for the artwork portion of class feel free, but the canvas paper will work just fine! I recommend a set of paints so you have multiple colors to choose from. A set with larger tubes is great if you are doing multiple classes. Each week I will be sending out a list of paint colors we will be using for that particular class but all classes can be completed with red, yellow, blue, black, and white paint. On most class days learners will have the option to choose their colors. A set of brushes is also a great idea to experiment and learn about different brush sizes and shapes! The brush set linked, is my favorite sizes and shapes. You might already have some at home! Canvas Paper, Canvas Board, or Stretched Canvas - Acrylic Paint Set - Brush Set - Paper Plate (or something to use as a paint pallet) Cup of Water Paper Towels If you would like or need to purchase new supplies, Amazon links are provided. Most supplies can also be purchased at your local grocery or art store. Please let me know if you have any questions about supplies, I'm happy to help!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Acrylic paints can be hard to get off of furniture and out of clothing. Please make sure students have a space to work that is ok to get a bit messy. I recommend wearing old clothes that you won't mind if they get a little paint on them. Acrylic does come off of hair and skin with just a little soap and water.
