In this art class you will learn painting skills of using ONLY the 3 primary colours (red, blue, yellow) by painting the colour wheel, a tint and tone scale and then progressing through to a sunrise painting with silouhette on canvas! It takes a little bit of know how to get to the finished sunrise painting, so sit back and watch the video's, do the exercises in the downloadable workbook and have a 15 minute chat with Mrs Red, up to twice, throughout the whole project via a zoom call. And once you have these painting skills under your belt, you can paint anything you want in acrylic paint!
These projects are suitable for ages 6+ however guidance will need to be given to children, with watching video's, tracing templates and following general step-by-step instructions.

Timeframe to complete project:
• Allow between 2 - 4 hours for this project • The class will be sent out to you over the course of a week, where you will receive the workbook to download, a timeline to complete project and supporting videos. • Plus 2 x 15 minute Zoom calls with Mrs Red if you wish • How long you take to do the project is up to you, however trying to stick to a month is a great goal. Some of you will work faster and that is fine. You just don't want to leave too much time in between starting and finishing. • The Zoom calls are optional however it is called an 'online art class' because of this, otherwise it would be an 'online art project'. Use the experience of Mrs Red to help you move forward with you drawing and painting.
Mrs Red may show you a powerpoint presentation that relates to what you have covered so far. This usually takes the first 5 minutes. Prior to Zoom call, take the best photo possible of your work in progress or finished artwork and email to Mrs Red so that she can put it up on screen to discuss.
