I am an art teacher with a degree in education from Ukraine. I have been teaching for over 20 years. I used to teach after school art classes for elementary students at local schools and home-schoolers. I write and design my own curriculum and design art projects that are open-ended and have a lot of room for self-expression, individuality, and innovation. Also, I love exploring new ways of combining art with other disciplines like science and using ordinary art materials in new and unusual ways.
I believe that art and creative thinking are beneficial to everyone. Creative skills are absolutely essential in problem solving and any other area of life -- mathematics, engineering, dancing, design, photography -- the list goes on and on. 
I started teaching art classes mostly for my daughter when she was just a preschooler. She is a senior in college now and I have seen how she's grown to apply these creative skills in how she studies, researches, and even how she cooks! I am still teaching art and creative thinking to other children and I love seeing my students' excitement as they discover that the world is open to so many unique possibilities.
Thick white paper or watercolor paper (80lb weight or higher; I like Canson (100510941) XL Series Watercolor Pad.) Pencil with eraser Oil pastels (preferred) or Crayons Watercolor brushes, medium and large (#12-14) Container for water (A container with a wider base or a bowl is less likely to spill.) Aluminum foil (This can be household grade and should fit or be larger than your watercolor paper.) Spray bottle Cups or containers for making paint Paper towels Salt (Kosher brand is preferred)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
