Before class, an outline will be updated to the classroom. Students can then print the outline, and trace it onto their watercolor paper, using a bright window in their home.

If you like, you can choose to trace multiple copies to try out different techniques, or draw your own!
watercolor paint (either pans or tubes are great!) a palette or plastic tray for mixing 8.5" x 11" watercolor paper, or mixed media paper that allows for wet and dry mediums watercolor brushes (rounds and flats are great to start with) or whatever brushes you have on hand work too! 2 cups of water for cleaning brushes paper towel salt pencil eraser
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The teacher will provide encouragement and support for students who have questions during/after class, or for those who want to share their paintings by posting a picture of their work in the classroom.
