This is an EASY class! There is nothing the parent or guardian has to do to prepare for this class other than making sure the learner shows up with his or her project. It can even be something they have previously created, not something that has to be done recently. This is an independent class in which the student shares his or her own creation of any kind. It could be something they drew, painted, or sculpted. It could be jewelry, weaving, a fabric project, or fiber art. It could be a...
Students will pique their creativity while learning social skills and public speaking skills thereby increasing confidence and self-esteem. They may gain an outlet for stress and anxiety, become inspired by the arts, and learn about the different types of arts and crafts. They may learn the importance of creativity and how everything starts with an idea. They may increase their motor dexterity and possible research skills. Most importantly, they may have fun!
For a number of years, I conducted arts and crafts workshops for ages 4 and up. It amazes me how much children and youth love to create and how much creativity they possess given the chance. Many of them loved showing their finished projects off and they looked forward to seeing their own faces and projects on the Workshop Facebook Page which gave me the idea for this Show and Tell class. I hope to see a variety of projects in this class.
Learners as independent individuals will create a type of art or craft of their choosing to present to the class. Some examples may include but are not limited to; quilting, painting, drawing, sculpting, collages, jewelry, mixed media, poem, short story, song/music, dance, 3-D objects, knitting, found objects, misc. items, inventions, and even fun food can be presented to the class. They will have a strict time limit depending on the number enrolled (please see note below about time limits) to describe their art/craft: what inspired them, why they chose what they did, how hard or easy it was, etc...basically whatever they want to tell us. NOTE: The time limit is enforced for a few reasons; time management skills are learned, the learner will be better prepared to give any future public speeches that are time-limited, and it is a good discipline for any type of time restraint. They will learn how to be brief but effective. Audiences get bored and restless easily and limiting the time of a speech keeps them more engaged. HOWEVER, once the time limit has been met, we will (if time allows) discuss items in more depth. NOTE: depending on how many learners have enrolled, the show and tell time limit may be shortened or lengthened in keeping with the class period. Make sure you are okay with this before signing your learner up.
The learner will use their own supplies in accordance with the art or craft they are creating
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no assessment. This class is meant to be nothing but encouraging and uplifting to the creator thereby boosting self-esteem and promoting even more creativity.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Please be advised that while I believe most art has a place in this world, this is a class for ages 6-9 and anything presented should be appropriate and nothing offensive Please review your learner's project and make sure their project is in keeping with this guidance.
Learners will research on their own if they need or choose to

Hello! I've had a past full of different types of working, learning and teaching and I've loved it all. I feel lucky that I've experienced so much and I want to pass that learning on to others. I believe children should be allowed to be children....
