Class Experience

My goal is for artists to have fun creating spring-themed, colorful artwork using simple supplies and to learn new techniques they can experiment with on their own.
I graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in visual arts. I have taught K-12 graders for the last 13 years in a variety of subjects, including a monthly art program that focused on art elements and the art masters. I enjoy teaching simple concepts that allow my students to experiment, explore and express themselves in new ways. I love discovering how one technique can have unexpected results and even be used in new ways. Sharing these colorful techniques with young artists makes the process even more exciting- I often learn from them as well!
No specific homework is assigned, but students are encouraged to try more designs or complete projects not completed during class time.
Day one
-Liquid watercolors - See link
-Thicker white art paper, (watercolor paper would be great!)
-Black Sharpie marker- Fine tip (this is a medium thickness)
-Old towel
-Oil pastels (crayons can work too)

Day two
-Chalk pastels in a rainbow of colors
-Mixed Media art paper (any kind of paper can work here, but preferably not just printer paper), 8 x10 is okay, but larger works well too up to 11 x 17 (and anything in between).
- Construction paper
-pencil and bar eraser

Day Three
-Mixed Media art paper
-Tempera or Acrylic paints
-plate or flat palette
-bell pepper (cut in half and seeded) corn cob, broccoli (a few stalks), celery (cut the bottom and rubberbanded), lemon sliced in half, potatoes (optional)
See photos upon enrollment for veggies
-plastic knife
-Cardstock- your choice of colors
-Printer Paper 8.5 x 11, standard size
-Scrapbook or patterned paper- your choice
-glue stick
-colored pencils in a variety of colors
-paper towels

Please reach out to me if you are having any trouble getting the supplies as these projects are based specifically on the supplies listed.

Throughout the class, I will have artists share their work with me to see their progress and ask questions as they arise. 
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
