Class Experience

Students will learn to sketch basic coral, tube sponges, and a seashell; and use wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry techniques.
I am a self-taught artist and I love exploring new mediums. For the past year I have been on a "watercolor journey," and have really had a joyous time.  I'm ready to share what I've learned and the joy of creating with as many people as possible! There's no better place to start than with children. (I'm also a certified teacher in Texas with over 30 years of experience.)
Watercolor paper divided into thirds. I use Canson XL and it works well with this technique. PLEASE NOTE: Copy paper or craft paper will not work well. You will get a lot of puddling of water and the paper will buckle. You won't be happy. It's best to wait until you can obtain some watercolor paper before enrolling. Any type of watercolor paint will do: tubes, pans, or liquids. Watercolor brushes in 2 or 3 sizes. I use a round 6, a round 0, and a wash brush. Round brushes are important because they come to a point and allow you to make thin and thick lines. Painter's tape or Washi tape -- we will use this to divide our paper into 3 sections. 2 cups of water Paper towels I will post instructions on how to prep your paper the day before class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
