Welcome to Dream, Draw Create!
This blog features art projects for children. These projects have been used in my classes. My lessons allow children to learn about all the elements and principles of art while striving to introduce them to many genres of art.

Birch Trees, Grade 6

Grade 6 students practiced their water painting skills while learning about the famous painting titled
"Magpie" by Claude Monet.
Many of the students didn't realize that a Magpie is a type of bird. This painting is a wonderful example of Impressionist art. It shows the attempt of the Impressionist artists to display sunlight in its many forms. In this case the beautiful sunlight of a cold winter landscape.
