Class Experience

This course is a great way to introduce young learners to poetry and fine arts. Students who have taken classes in my Painting Poetry series may be familiar with the process of reading a poem and painting a scene inspired by the poem. This course is a longer series that will allow each student to progress alongside fellow classmates every week and to complete a portfolio of art! 
My Painting Poetry with Watercolors classes have been so successful on Outschool that I have decided to compile them into a longer course for those who would like to complete a portfolio of their artwork. I enjoy teaching watercolor techniques to children, and love combining my love of poetry with my passion for fine art. If you would like a shorter trial version of this class, sign up for one of my Painting Poetry with Watercolors classes by clicking on my teacher profile!
Students can continue to add to their portfolio on their own, using these paintings and poems as inspiration to even attempt writing their own poems and taking their notebooks "in the field". 
- Art journal with watercolor or mixed media paper, watercolor paper or canvas. 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 while drying.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
