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.

Animal Masks - Grade 5
The students used oil pastels to color their designs. Shading and highlighting were encouraged as the pastel was applied. The interesting organic shapes created with the glue allowed for the use of a variety of color and color blending.
The results were very dramatic. It was a bit of a struggle choosing the most complimentary background for the masks. After a lot of trial and error the background paper was created with strokes of colorful chalk that really made their image pop!
