This is a portion of the online class, Paint Your Way Through Art History.

Each class begins with a review of student work from the previous lessons, and some chatting about the week and how everyone is doing. 

We have a history lesson about the worldview and history related to the art, which you can watch in the first video below.

Then, I'll teach a painting or drawing skill and students practice with me. Sometimes this is drawing or using a fine tip pen or some other technique. In this class, we do the first layer of the painting.

Finally, we paint our masterpiece...in this lesson that was painting waterlilies!

If you'd like to paint along, you'll need acrylic paint in blue, magenta, yellow, and white and something to paint on: canvas or paper. If you use paper, use a heavy weight paper and coat it with a thin layer of gesso before you start. In the class, we use a Strathmore Mixed Media Art Journal, which we fill entirely by the end of the year making an amazing art history book and portfolio piece.

The following video is from the self-paced Essentials Grammar Workshop. In this section I discuss 4  good reasons to study grammar. 

Art Grant Project Ideas

If you're in Challenge II, you'll be asked to do an Art Grant Project. It's hard to know how to start! So watch this video and get some ideas and formulate a plan to get it done on time!

In the video I refer to the chart below. Just click on the red box below and it should open up. It's a filled in chart. Have your students make their own chart using this as a guide.  (And show me their art projects in the FB group, Marvelous to Behold Fan Club, I'd love to see what they create!

If you'd like to paint along with this demo, you will need 3 tubes of acrylic paint in these colors:

1) Phthalocyanine Blue, 2) Quincridone Magenta, and 3) Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue

I paint in a Mixed Media Art Journal, but you could use watercolor paper or canvas or canvas board.
