Project Artwork is about multiple mediums!
Project Artwork lessons expose young artists to techniques in a variety of mediums. Young artists are still exploring their creativity, and mixing up the materials keeps it fresh and exciting for them.
Rather than pigeon-holing my students into working with a single medium, I feel it is important for children to learn how to use a variety of tools to express their ideas in art.
Every unit you purchase always contains a nice combination of projects that involve working with two or three different types of art mediums.
Art mediums you can expect your child to learn and use in my courses:
- acrylic paint
- oil pastel
- colored pencil
- soft pastel
- drawing materials
I also like to include clay, sculpture, weaving, and textile projects from time to time!
90% of the projects within my units can be accomplished with the supplies from my NEED to Have Art Supply Checklist.
Some units may require simple items you can gather from your kitchen or home office, or one or two specialty items to purchase.
I always provide a printable supply checklist for each specific unit to help you facilitate your children's art time. And the first video of every project shows you and your kids what particular supplies they will need for that project.
I'm a FIRM believer in giving children HIGH-QUALITY supplies. No crummy paintbrushes or flimsy paper!
If you want your child to produce quality work, you need to provide them with quality supplies.
It's just as exciting for a young artist to get a set of Prismacolor colored pencils as it is for an aspiring NBA player to get a new pair of LeBrons!
That being said, there's no need to break your bank buying expensive studio-artist supplies. There are plenty of student grade supplies that are high quality and made to stand up to rigorous kid use! After 14 years of teaching art, I have learned what works and what doesn't. I put together a list of my favorites here.
