Online Kids Art Class for Home schoolers by Brenda Williams thru Foothills Learning Academy

Watercolor/Pastel Painting

Grades 4-8
$180 for 12 lessons, plus $40 for supply kit

This class is an exploration of two wonderful painting mediums, Watercolor and Pastel!

We begin the semester with 6 weeks of Watercolor, which includes various exciting techniques, such as wet-on-wet, wax resist, salt painting, landscape and still life.

For the next 6 weeks we will be exploring Pastels and all of the ways to have fun with color and style as well as the many different ways to use pastel to create beautiful and exciting paintings.

I don’t teach students to “copy” me, but to develop their own style. I give them the tools and techniques to be able to make their own individual, creative art on their own when they are finished with my class.

Remote Learning Model: Each class will be online via Zoom, with full class participation. I will record each Zoom lesson so that students can go back and repeat lessons or get more practice. It will also be available to students who missed class on the day it was held.

Materials: I have put together a kit which includes absolutely everything that will be needed for the 12 classes in the semester, including a full set of pastels and a full set of tube watercolors as well as brushes, special paper, and other necessary items. There is an extra materials charge for this class of $40 to cover the cost of the kit.
*This kit would suffice for subsequent watercolor/pastel classes, if your child decides to continue in future semesters (and would only need to purchase more specialized paper for $10 or less)

Each lesson will also include cultural background information and artistic examples, as well as a short intro to the music of that culture, which will be playing in the background while students work.

I don’t teach students to “copy” me, but to investigate and develop their own style. I give them the tools and techniques to be able to make their own individual, creative art on their own when they are finished with my class, as well as skills to take into the next level of art classes as they grow.

Remote Learning Model: Each class will be online via Zoom, with full class participation. I will record each Zoom lesson so that students can go back and repeat lessons or get more practice. It will also be available to students who missed class on the day it was held. How much parent involvement will there be? Depending on your child’s age and abilities, you may need to help set them up with the paints, water, or clay at the start of class.

Materials: I have put together a kit which includes absolutely everything that will be needed for the 12 classes in the semester, including all paints, brushes, colored sand, markers, air dry clay, special paper, and other necessary items.

I teach drawing using a method I developed that makes drawing really fun and easy! We start with very simple exercises and work up to portraiture by the end of the semester.

Students are usually amazed at how much they progress in one semester!
