These came out amazing, and everyone loved the process of making them. Perfect way to use up a bunch of recycled items that would end up in the garbage pile.
After a bit of trial and error, I found the printing blocks that worked perfectly for a group of kids. I fell in love with this project, and now want to work on my own large print!
This was a great art class, that lasted just one hour and had a fun process and awesome results.
This is one of my favorite art lessons. It allows you to explore textures, while leaving plenty of room for creative expression. Plus, the clean up is a breeze!
This is most certainly one of my favorite art lessons to do with kids. It takes quite a bit of prep time on my part, and patience on the kids part, but really worth it! At the end, the experience of creating a mosaic is as close to the real thing as it gets, and the materials are super inexpensive.
It was an adventure: trying to find a great, non toxic, air dry clay for art class. I have tried several, each one with it’s unique properties. Each clay was really so different, that there are several projects that we have done with the different clay there, and more will be added in the future.
I love pop up cards. To me they are magical and fun, and I wanted to share that with my youngest.

This is such a fun project: using leftover oil pastels make your own scratchboard paper and art. The possibilities with this project are endless: make a secret drawing underneath, make fun patterns, make it big or small. This is just a fantastic project all around, and I can’t wait to do it with the kids next year!
Finger painting is not only for kids, it is fun and relaxing, and has quite a history. Many artists throughout time have used their fingers while making art. When the kids asked me to do it with them, here is what we did.

It is a fun project for both kids and adults. Most importantly, have a good time with it! Check out my process and all of my mistakes. Even though I am not entirely happy with the results, I still had a great time with this project.
