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!
Just click through the mediums below to see more!
I have created this page so that I can share all the photography tips, tricks and techniques that I have learned along the way.
Get started with acrylics. Find information about how to start, and ideas for art lessons here!!! Would you like to paint a forest, or maybe sunflowers?

Sometimes it is hard to put a lesson in a category.Here you will find collages, and other lessons that are different!
