Class Experience

Learners will learn basic terminology in color theory, put that knowledge to use during class, learn useful paint brush strokes, how to clean brushes, how to use paint, mix and blend paint, how to paint a background, alternate ways of painting stars and how to paint colorful whimsical clouds, how to work together, how to compliment each other and their own work, how to learn and have fun at the same time, how to be gentle and patient with themselves and how to build social skills.
I have owned and managed my fine art business since 2008. I have and currently teach painting and crafting classes, classes on tips on how to be a successful artist, I have my Associates in Arts, I have been published in newspapers and online galleries, I have worked on many commissioned art works and continue to do so and exhibited at fine art festivals. 
One hour or more prior to class the student will paint a background in any color they choose by watching a youtube video that I have created specifically for this class. Homework will take approximately 10-15 minutes.

~Paint colors needed: White or Titanium White Black or Ivory Black or Mars Black Primary Red or Red Medium Hue Primary Yellow or Yellow Medium Hue Primary Blue or Pthalo Blue (green shade) or Cobalt Blue or Ultramarine Blue Magenta or Fuchsia (optional) Here is a couple links for paint sets (minus the Magenta) I couldn't find a paint set with Magenta or Fuchsia in it. these sets have more paint colors than needed but if they are interested in painting the paint will be used in the future. t or ~Paint Brushes needed: Simply Simmons Flat Shader #12. It is approximately $5 per brush locally but will last a long time if cared for properly. Below is a link to the Simply Simmons paint brush page on Jerry's Artorama website: Here is a pack of 4 Simply Simmons brushes with the brush above for $13.95 (price subject to change): You can use another kind of brush but take note that it may not be able to render the same results from my instructions. To care for your paint brush purchase "The Masters Brush Cleaner and Preserver" ~Use a plastic plate for color mixing or a plastic palette ~Water cup for rinsing brushes ~Paper towels or a rag for wiping off wet brushes ~Wear a paint apron or clothes you don't care if they get paint on them
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessment. I want to see the learners having fun while creating artwork they can be proud of. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This is a youtube video I made specifically for this class. It has instructions on how to paint a background on your canvas prior to class. We will need the background completely dry before starting class. It takes approximately an hour to dry completely when using acrylic paints. Please watch it as many times as you need to, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
