WATERCOLOR SUPPLY LIST
Diren He, Instructor


Watercolor brush:
   Three round brushes:  # 2,  # 8,  # 12
    Flat brushes:  1/2", 1"

Water container: 
    I prefer two. One for clean water; one for dirty water. 

Palette:
For indoor painting, butchers tray or any type of watercolor palette with large mixing areas; even white plate might work.
    If you plan to paint outdoors in the future, you might need a palette with lid (option). 

Stock:
    Any type of watercolor paper
    watercolor board (option)
    or light weight illustration board (option)

Drawing Board or a piece of plywood 

Artist tape:
    For mounting watercolor paper. If you use watercolor board or illustration board, you don't need this tape.

Pencil and Eraser:
    For sketch or rough drawing

 Paper towel or Blotting paper:
    For lifting out color and excessive water

Watercolor or Gouache in tube:
    I pick up colors that contain both cool and warm, light and dark for each hue, such as Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Yellow Deep, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red, Bengal Rose or Magenta, Alizarin Crimson, Permanent Violet, Sap Green, Permanent Green Deep, Cobalt Blue, Phthalo Blue, then add some neutral colors like Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber and White. 
    For beginner, the simplest way for choosing color is purchase a set of 12 or 18 watercolors. After using them for a while, you will figure out which color you need more, which one you use less and you might find some new colors you'd like to try.

Reference:
    I will have some still lifes or flowers in class, but I encourage you to bring your own favorite things, photos or some other reference, and camera if you like.

XBL 101 - Creating Successful Staff Retreats

A staff retreat can evoke some pretty strong emotions. Dread of a week hanging around with people you would never invite home for dinner. Queasy thinking about throwing yourself backwards hoping your ?new friends? will catch you. However, staff retreats still continue even in hard times. Why? Many of the things we really need to get done take longer than the two hours you have in meeting time. As well, the retreat itself can bring about a change in approach not possible sitting in your boardroom for a meeting. This course will give you tools to be able to create staff retreats that are successful and help to bolster productivity, sales and positive workplace culture.

XNC 8091 - Spirituality and Recovery

A useful paradigm for addiction treatment is that of a "bio-psycho-social-spiritual disease". Most clinicians have a handle on the "bio-psycho-social" part, but many of us struggle with comprehension, familiarity and facility in exploring the spiritual angle with clients. This class will examine various models and definitions of spirituality, and look at its importance in treatment and recovery. Spirituality will be explored via three contemporary schools of treatment and recovery: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT); and the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for Substance Use Disorders will be reviewed. RNs, LPNs, social workers, and counselors will earn 6 contact hours.

CEU Hours: .6

Contact Hours: 6

1. Define and explain the meaning of "spirituality" from the perspective of addiction treatment and recovery.

XNC 8109 - Helping Clients Understand Their Medicare Benefits

A recent study indicated that over 90% of Medicare beneficiaries do not understand the system and the benefits and coverage it provides them. As healthcare professionals, we often interface with senior clients who are ill, need care and treatment, but are often reluctant to accept care until they first know what it will cost them in dollars and cents. In this interactive course, we will bring clarity to a complex system and clearly define all parts of coverages, as well as eligibility, costs, system structure (deductibles, copays, etc.), and various coverage options available beyond original Medicare that will help you, the healthcare provider, assist your clients to navigate their healthcare needs and costs so they can better access what they need and deserve. RNs, LPNs, social workers, LPCs, LCPCs, psychologists, registered dieticians, and respiratory therapists will earn 3 contact hours. ACHAs will earn 3 (A). PTs and OTs will earn 2.75 contact hours.

XNC 8198 - To Clot Or Not To Clot: Anticoagulants and Antiplatelet Medications

Blood clots are formed to stop blood loss when an injury occurs. Without the formation of blood clots even a minor cut could result in excessive bleeding. Problems can arise when blood clots form unnecessarily. Hemostasis is a complex process that ensures a proper balance of clotting such that bleeding is controlled without inhibiting blood flow within the body. Blood can clot abnormally with unique circumstances as stasis, hypercoagulability and endothelial damage. Anticoagulant medications are foundation therapies used to treat and prevent thrombus formation. Although specific in action with a positive endpoint these medications can produce serious adverse reactions. This course will review coagulation disorders, anticoagulant medications and associated risks of therapy. APRNs, RNs, LPNs, social workers, counselors, registered dieticians, and respiratory therapists will earn 3 contact hours. ACHAs will earn 3 (RC). PTs and OTs will earn 2.75 contact hours.

XBE 0105 - Delegating with Purpose (SBDC)

Delegation is a critical skill for leaders in today's "do more with less" business environment. Fewer resources, changing motivations, virtual employees, and global workforces are just a few of the challenges leaders face as they attempt to meet ever-increasing workplace demands. In this course, leaders learn the skills they need to address these challenges, gain the commitment of team members, develop individual skills and abilities, and enhance the overall capability and capacity of their teams and, ultimately, the organization. Leaders learn to identify the tasks they need to delegate, select the most appropriate individuals, assess capabilities and commitment, and plan the delegation discussion including the level of decision-making authority, amount of support, and methods for measuring and monitoring the delegation. This class is part of the Business Leadership Certificate. The on-campus DDI course is approved by HRCI and SHRM for 3.5 hours.
