This bundle is everything you need to teach a Painting I or Painting II semester long course. This curriculum was designed to build on the projects I teach in my Painting I class, but can easily work as a Painting I class.

In this course students complete nine projects and learn about printmaking, acrylic, watercolor, and oil (which can be taught as an acrylic project as well). A range of techniques are covered from wet on wet to palette knife painting and still life studies to portraiture.

All in all the following projects are included in this curriculum:
