How do you like the new look of my blog? It has been in the works for a couple of weeks and it is so fun to see the changes. I have to thank the talented people at Smitten Blog Designs for all of their hard work. Feel free to "steal my button" and help spread the word about my class on your blog.
I can't believe the first day of class is in only 3 days! I am so excited! I want to thank everyone for their enthusiasm about my class! I have loved hearing from people all over the country that have been out shopping for art supplies over the last 2 weeks. I think your money has been well spent! As we get closer to the first day of this class the number of hits I have been receiving on my site continues to grow. I am getting anywhere from 700 to 1500 hits on a daily basis. I am amazed. I know that many of you are probably wondering what in the world this online class is going to be like. Well I am going to try to answer some of the questions today.
Q: Are you going to be using video?
A: No, though that would be fun I am explaining all of the projects through step-by-step instructions and pictures.
Q: How often will you be posting projects?
A: Depending on the week I will be posting projects Monday through Thursday or Monday through Friday. We will be learning about 4 elements of art in this class: color, line, shape and texture. Each week we will focus on one of those elements. I recommend that you work on art projects a little bit at a time everyday of the week rather than trying to do everything in one day. Remember to go at your child's pace.
Q: Will the projects be posted for a limited amount of time?
A: Yes, the instructions for each project will be online for 2 days. After the 2 days are up you will still be able to see pictures of the projects online.
Q: How much will your PDFs costs?
A: I will be selling 2 PDFs, the first one covers weeks 1 and 2, and the second one covers weeks 3 and 4. You can buy the PDFs individually for $12 each or you can buy the set for $20. The PDFs will go on sale this Monday. If you purchase the set of both PDFs you will receive the first set as soon as you order it and you will receive the second PDF automatically through email on Monday March 28th.
Q: How will I receive the PDF?
A: Immediately after you purchase the PDF you will receive an email with the PDF attached that can be downloaded to your computer.
Q: Do I have to buy a PDF to participate in the class?
A: No. It is just an option if you would like to have a personal copy of the class plus additional bonus projects that will not be seen online.
*I apologize but I realized that I forgot to list the children's books that I recommend to go along with the class on the material's list. I have chosen one children's book to go with each week's theme. Of course you do not need to buy these books, they just help to reinforce what the children are learning. These are the books I recommend:
Color: Mouse Paint by Ellen Walsh
Line: Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
Shape: It Looked like Spilt Milk by Charles Shaw
Texture: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
There is also one other thing I forgot to put on the list: marbles. Sorry, about that I will make sure to go back to the material's post and include those items.
I hope that answers some of your questions, if you have any other questions leave a comment and I will try to answer them.
