About this course
Playground celebrates your inner child. It cherishes the nostalgia of simpler times. We paint from a place of play and remembering the excitement about heading back to school. What are some of your favorite memories? We will build libraries of school supplies, playground equipment, and even a bus. We will work with chalk and "crayons" to create a child-like painting. We will celebrate Mr. Fred Rogers with his wise words and do a painting of him with King Friday.
We will also be working in our journals to play with symbols and what they mean to you. We will scribble and have fun and let our inner child out to have fun.

Do I need all the supplies on the supply list? No, I am all about using what you have on hand using similar materials and paint colors. My absolute must have color of paint is Quin. nickel azo gold by golden.
