Art Class for Teachers


Tuesdays, February 4, 11, 18, & 25, 2020    6:00 - 8:30 PM

Instructor: Emma Wales

Fee includes all supplies

Refuel your creativity!

Tired of scrolling through Pinterest looking for that perfect project to bring back to your elementary school classroom? This session is just what the doctor ordered! Discover the endless possibilities of the art materials you already have on hand, experiment with new ones, and refill your bucket with some much-needed you-time.

Projects include watercolour landscapes, pastel portraits, and observational drawings.

Not only will you make your own art projects, you will also leave with inspiration, resources, tips, tricks, and techniques to take back to your classroom to help you with project planning and execution. You will:

  • Get re-acquainted with watercolour paints, oil pastels, drawing media you already have on hand, and more
  • Learn techniques that will empower your students to take creative risks and that encourage early finishers to spend more time on their projects
  • Acquire tips for storing and caring for materials, and for reducing waste in the art room
  • Learn about what paper to use, when, and why
  • Discover tricks that will keep you and your students inspired and engaged all year long!

All levels welcome with no expectation of previous knowledge or skill.
