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.

Versatile Blogger Award

So exciting! I was given The Versatile Blogger Award by Mary at MaryMaking..  I've been working hard at this blogging "thing". Always "Dreaming, drawing and Creating".  It has been an honor to receive this award"!  
On checking out Mary Making I found it to be fresh, colorful and inspirational.  I think in  some ways our styles are very similar.  The uninhibited and care free use of color brings a smile to my face.  And anyone who uses a ladybug for inspiration is a friend of mine!
Thank you Mary for selecting me.

According to the rules I have to write seven things about me:

1. I'm a quilter.  I won a ribbon last year at the Vermont Quilt Festival.
2. I have a crazy dog and a charming cat.
3. I love to bake, apple pie is my specialty.
4. I won "Teacher of the Year" in 2003. Sponsored by the Wal- Mart foundation.
5. I love ladybugs, they bring back loving memories of my mother.
6. I have two children that I adore, a daughter and a son.
7. I supervise student teachers for the art department at the College of Saint Rose.

I find the following blogs inspiring and worthy of taking a look at!:

1. Splish Splash  Splatter
2 .Barbaras thought of the day
3.  Fun Art Adventures with Middle School Students
4.  Think Create Art
5.  Hands Head 'n Heart
6.  The Painted Apple
7.  Adventures of an Art Teacher
8.  Art Class Inspiration
9.  In art class
10. That Little Art Teacher

Congrats to all, and thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas.  Now, tell 7 interesting facts about yourself, pass the award onto 10 newly discovered or favorite bloggers, and lastly, thank and link back to the blogger who gave you the award.)
