A wildly fun one-time class where each student draws or paints a different "quilt" square, illustrating a randomly chosen part of a story, which are then "stitched" together to form a narrative quilt. Students will get to see how their individual artwork comes together to form a story, and will receive a high-quality digital copy of the class quilt, all stitched together as a printable poster. This class is great as a lunch-time activity or after school project that can include a...
We will be focused on learning to follow directions, work creatively within defined parameters, collaborate with a team, and (most importantly) have lots of silly fun!
I am an artist, nanny, and educator who has been working creatively with kids for 15+ years. I studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design, and taught preschool and early-childhood classes through community centers, YMCA's, and other private organizations. I've taught a wide range of delightfully messy subjects to little ones, including art, crafts, gardening, swimming, cooking, and more. As a mixed media artist, who also loves working with graphic design, I have experimented with just about every kind of art I could get my hands on over the years. I have a studio full of supplies on hand, ready to demonstrate dozens of different mediums, tools, and styles as needed.
Students will be required to complete one to two artworks based on their randomly drawn assignment. They will need to complete these and turn them in (as a photograph or scan) within 48 hours.
Students will need drawing or painting supplies ready to go before class starts. Student will need to submit their artwork by scanning or photographing it, so please make sure you are able to do that within 48 hours after the class, so I can stitch them together and return the quilts as quickly as possible. Web cams aren't required, but the student must attend class to get their prompt for their individual square.
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.
Please make sure your child has drawing/painting supplies ready to go before class, and that they are able to submit their work within 48 hours, as described in the Materials section. All students must be enrolled separately to have their picture included in the quilt.

As a long-time nanny, educator, and artist, I've spent years personally designing my own creative and exploratory projects for the children in my life. I am passionate about homemade early education to the point of total nerdiness. I believe that...
