My learners will be engaged in hands-on learning activities and get to interact with myself and each other. The structure of this class is a combination of teacher guided step-by-step instruction, demonstration, independent practice and interacting with each other through discussion. The classroom space is inclusive, one in which each student will feel safe, understood, respected and valued. *Siblings and/or co-learners must be enrolled to attend and participate in the class.

This class is for aspiring artists who aren't afraid of getting a little messy and to express themselves creatively through art making. Students will create original works of art that reflect their feelings and unique individuality. Overall, participating in this class, students will have improved their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, enhanced focus, visual and spatial relationship skills and feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. Creating original art will build confidence, nurture innate creativity and spark right-brain activity, thus enhancing academic performance. All wonderful outcomes from a simple single art classes with me!
I am offering this class because I love color in all of it's forms and introducing my students to the art of watercolors brings me much joy. I love creating something beautiful that didn’t exist ever before! I have been making art since I was three-years old and grew up in a home environment where creativity was a way of life. I’ve always been creative and interested in colors, textures, textiles, fashion design and traveling the globe appreciating diverse cultures. I am inspired by nature, the cosmos and color most of all! To me, making art, expressing myself creatively and teaching others to do that, are as natural as breathing. Kids of all ages love my inspired, relaxed and energetic style of teaching art. I look forward to having the opportunity to meet and create art together.
Gather up all of the art materials as listed in the Materials section. Read and review the Classroom Welcome message. Allow time to receive via any online purchases. Especially, if you like, gather up your Watercolor paper that also has an envelope option to share with friends and loved ones.
This is the basic and essential list of art supplies that are required for this class. Gather what you have at home already that will work. See the online list I have created for reference and an option for online ordering/delivery to order/have before class begins. Supplies List: Items with an *asterik are required, the brand does not matter. PAINTS: + *Watercolor Paints- $6-$25 (set comes with a palette) + Gouache Artist Acrylic 20 ml tube- White $3.50 PAPER: + *Watercolor Paper- one sheet medium size- $6 5 x 7 or 9 x 12 inches is a good medium size Note: ***I highly suggest having Watercolor paper- it is designed to hold water and not buckle or warp. Watercolor paper is usually 140lb weight paper. An alternate if you have it, is Bristol paper, it is generally 100lb. That is sufficient, but the heavier the paper, the better for watercolor painting. BRUSHES: + *A variety of water color paint brushes (qty. 1-4): Set- $10 For example, - medium size flat brush or mop brush - 1-2 medium round brushes (size 4-8) - smaller round brush with a point for details (size 1-3) WHITE PAINT MARKER: + White Paint Marker or White Chalk Writer -small tip is best MISC. + *Water container - can be an up-cycled yogurt container, jar, etc. + Apron (can be a re-purposed cooking apron) - 0-$3 + *newspaper or plastic table cloth to cover your work area, table top. -$1-$3 + paper towels or tissue- several sheets + tooth brush + spray bottle (can be a mini size, filled with water) + hair dryer + blue painters tape or washi tape + piece of card board (bigger than your paper size) - optional + sharpened pencil/eraser + a circle-shaped object that can be used to trace a circle (smaller in size than paper size) OR a compass tool If you want to purchase a ready-made Kit that includes watercolor paints, paper, brushes, etc- The watercolor paints are in tubes- not a pan: Strathmore Learning Series Watercolor Kits - Basics - $27 Fun Options: (or future independent water color painting.
