Homework will be optional and highly beneficial. Homework outside of the classroom typically takes under an hour to complete.
💠 Watercolors 💠 Watercolor brushes 💠 Watercolor paper 💠 Cup (for water) 💠 Towels/rags (excess water/accidental spillage) 💠 Pencil 💠 Pencil sharpener 💠 Eraser (vinyl recommended) 💠 Fine-tip permanent pen (for labeling purposes. Micron and Sharpie recommended. No bic or paper-mate pens) 💠 Circle template (or a compass) 💠 Rubbing alcohol (use a separate clean brush for this and have a small container for the rubbing alcohol to be in) 💠 Sea salt 💠 Pepper (freshly cracked pepper is best) 💠 Used coffee grounds 💠 Plastic wrap (Saran Wrap) 💠 Paper towels 💠 Natural sponge 💠 Masking tape (please use the blue painters tape. The white artist tape and kids tape doesn't do well with watercolors and it will go under the artist tape instead of making a barrier. If you don't have masking tape, have you child draw the grid instead).
Assessments can be offered upon request. Please reach out and Mrs. V can work with your request.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be painting throughout this class. Please set up an area where your child can use the computer while working with paint. Students will be encouraged to work on an angled surface. Please prop their paper/sketchbook so it can be at an angle. They need to be able to work on both a flat surface and an angled surface. You can attach the watercolor paper with tape to a board and prop it or use a book to prop against. This is highly recommended as we will use gravity to manipulate the paint.
