Class Experience

Learners will look at mythological creatures from Scandinavia and understand how folklore is passed down through time and history.
Annette has been telling folktales and fairy tales for over 25 years and has a deep love for all stories from all over the world.
Class One. We will make our own trolls, so please don't forget to bring at least one nice rock. If you want to use more than one rock, you'll need strong glue to hold them together. You'll definitely need markers or sharpies and beyond that, use your imagination and bring anything else you might want to use to create your very own rock troll! Please also bring paper and some sort of drawing material. Class Two. Please bring paper, something for drawing (crayons, pencils, markers, etc) and something that will be the mist. This could be tissue paper, an unrolled cotton ball, a dryer sheet, blue watercolor paint-- anything that is translucent and can be seen through. We want to make sure our elves can be seen through the mist! Class Three. This week we are going to meet some tricksters, and will create some of our own. You will need the following for class: 1. A toilet paper tube or create your own by rolling up some cardstock 2. Felt, paper, or markers to decorate your tomten 3. Felt or paper for the hat 4. A pom pom or button for the nose, or you can just draw it 5. Wool roving, cotton ball, pillow stuffing, anything to serve as a beard 6. Scissors and glue and markers Class Four: We will be learning about five different sea creatures, and you will create an art project representing one or all of them. You will need 1. Something to use as the background-- sturdy paper, a shoebox, a lid, anything! 2. Something to create the creatures-- crayons, makers, clay, etc. 3. Something represent water. This could be ribbon, blue watercolor paint, a blue crayon, anything.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Mythological creatures don't always play nicely, so some stories will have strong villains doing bad things. Rest assured, all of our stories will end with a happily ever after!
