This has been one of my more popular Summer Camp 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!
The homework is in the videos: techniques first, and project second.  If something isn't looking right, or they aren't getting a technique right away, practice is a good thing and encouraged!

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
If this is your learner's first Outschool class I recommend getting familiar with the Zoom interface and platform before the class starts. Outschool has a few articles and videos that can help. Unfortunately I am really unable to deal with any technical issues once class has begun and if you are experiencing issues, it's best to contact technical support at Outschool directly via the HELP tab on the website.

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.

Hey Ya'll!
           I am not your typical art teacher who teaches from a mold, and expects kids to fit into a box.  Being taught with that mindeset prevented true creativity, self exploration and expression, and any honest confidence in my...
