Art Lessons

As an artist and a mom I am always on the lookout for more art works to do and make with my kids. I have been at it for quite a few years and accumulated so many ideas that we have tried and explored. We are always trying new things. This page is for the ideas we have done and enjoyed, with step by step instructions and photographs. On this page you will find lessons that range from students as young as a toddler, to a much older student that is more advanced. I am organizing them by materials. I hope you enjoy them!
