Class Experience

Our paintings will focus on being inspired by the poem, so it is possible that every student's painting will be unique. At the end of this course, your student will have a portfolio of beautiful paintings and well-known works of literature.
My Painting Poetry with Watercolors classes have been so successful on Outschool that I have decided to compile them into a flex course for those who would like to complete a portfolio of their artwork on their own schedule. I enjoy teaching watercolor techniques to children, and love combining my love of poetry with my passion for fine art. 
Each week, students will add the assigned poem to their journals by painting a scene or background, then copying the poem by hand. They can copy the entire poem or choose an excerpt.
- Art journal with watercolor or mixed media paper. Journal can be any size. Spiral-bound journals are typically easier to paint in. An example can be seen here: - Watercolor paints (any brand will work, but you may want to choose a set with several colors). - Various paintbrushes in assorted sizes - Water, newspaper and paper towels on hand - Binder clips (optional) to help keep the pages straight
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
