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.

Portrait of a President by Grade 1






This was a short little drawing lesson to introduce my very large group of first graders to some basic portrait drawing skills.  In honor of President's day we chose to draw George Washington.  It was a lot of fun to see the personalities of the students come out in their drawings.  They tried very hard to demonstrate their new found skills of highlighting and shading, and they loved giving George a head full of cotton hair!  His lace collar is a paper doily!  Happy Presidents day George!
