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.

What's all the buzz about

Recently I have been doing a lot of posting of work from my Primary students. This is a little unusual for me as I tend to enjoy the complexity of the work by my older students.  It's not that they haven't been doing some amazing work.  We're busy building some cardboard sculptures fashioned after the artist Jean Dubuffet as well as some cool two dimensional work inspired by Marcel DuChamp.  The school year is winding down here in the Northeast so keeping projects simple and lighthearted isn't a bad idea for the remaining few weeks!"  I found just that sort of lesson over at the art teachers closet blog whose link you will find below.  It's a great way to introduce symmetry in a fun and simple way for my youngest art students.  Throw in a little paint and some finger printing and you've covered many valuable principles and techniques.  Thanks to all the bloggers who are devoted to sharing their talent.
Enjoy, "What's all the buzz about".


  1. What a cute lesson, Janis! I'm not yet in "wind-down" mode but getting there soon...

    And we will stay in touch, I promise!

  2. Happy Mother's Day, Janis! Love the Beehives!



Please leave me a comment. I would love to hear from you.
