My Class Planning Process

My Class Planning Process - student project

Hello!

I just finished filming for this month! In my class I'll be teaching how to paint watercolor galaxies using 10 easy steps. I've been told that the way I teach watercolor galaxies is very easy to follow, so I thought that creating a full class with all my tips would be super helpful. I'm so excited to be part of this challenge and see all the amazing classes that everyone else will create! 

 

My class is now published! Watch it here!

My Class Planning Process

I have a journal that I write everything in  outlines, ideas, calendars, notes, etc. When I'm starting a new class, I write down a whole bunch of ideas for potential classes. This way I'll have a list of topics for future classes.

Once I've chosen a topic, I begin writing an outline. I list out the supplies needed, the steps, and my own tips & techniques. Having all this information will help me break the class down into lessons. When I've separated everything into lessons, I use bullet points listing what I'll be covering in each video. 

 Here is a video of my process creating my last class that I uploaded to my YouTube channel.
