Class Experience

Each week I offer multiple videos of creatures to give each learner the option of choosing what they want to learn how to paint.  
Learn how to paint animals, insects, sea creatures
Learn how to do specific watercolor techniques like: wet on wet, wet on dry, water blending, pigment blending
Learn how to use different types and sizes of brushes
Learn how to paint with watercolor puddles, and from the pigment tablets themselves
Each week the learner should be able to walk away from class with at least one painting they absolutely love, hence the many options.  If one just isn't working for them, try a different one.  
Learner's get access to all videos for up to 60 days after class ends so they can go back and try the other videos they didn't before during class.
This has been one of my more popular classes I've offered to my local Homeschool group, local community during the summer, and even with my adult private lessons.  I love teaching watercolor, it's a fun fluid medium where you can be incredibly creative.  My favorite part about teaching art classes is when I get to see the world through the eyes of the students by viewing their interpretations of the assignments I give them in class.

As mentioned in my teacher profile I have 10 years of experience teaching early education pre-K classes, in both North Carolina and Utah. I have been able to use my degrees in Visual Arts with a focus on Art History from NCSU and my Associate in Arts from Wake Tech Community College, to teach kids and adults: various art classes here in North Carolina for the past 7 years.  With my scouting connections I have had 5 years experience teaching science and history classes in North Carolina and Florida.  Whether it was as a Co-Op teacher for my local home school groups, Art merit Badge Counselor for the local Boy Scout clinic, teaching STEAM classes for Cub Scouts, Nail art and Jewelry Crafting to teenage girls in my church, or summer art classes through my business, The Painting Panda, I love being able to share what I have learned!

Hi parents,
I have created a really fun interactive classroom through google sheets for one of our extra parts to class.  This classroom has images of my own watercolor art that the students get to click on for a fun game or video.  The videos are links to youtube videos (some are my own, and others are from kid friendly watercolor themed resources).   I have done everything on my end to remove ads, however if you need to do something on your end to remove ads, or stop other videos from playing after the initial one I have linked please have those settings already in place, otherwise you can view along side your child.  This is an optional extra your child can participate in, that is really fun. 

Parents I have very important rules, directions and instructions in the very first post in the classroom after you sign up a student, please read them with your student so you understand what my expectations are.

About Me

Hey Ya'll!
           I am not your typical art teacher who teaches from a mold, and expects kids to fit into a box.  Growing up with those teaching expectations prevented me from finding my style of art for many years, and being comfortable with...
