1 file available upon enrollmentA supply list for the next class will be posted on the Outschool class page 6 days prior to the next class or sent through an Outschool message if a learner joins after the class page post. I aim to use supplies that many learners can find around their home -- like markers, paper, etc. For supplies that are not common household items, I aim to keep the cost under $5 per week. I will always provide an alternative option that only uses common household items to accodate all learners.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
