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.

Cardinals on a snowy day Grade 6
My sixth grade students this year did a wonderful job which didn't disappoint.
We began by using colored chalk as a soft rubbing on a background of light blue construction paper. Next we sponge painted around the edge of the paper with white paint. As this was drying we looked at photographs of Cardinals and began drawing them on red construction paper. Once all the details were added we cut them out and placed them on the background. Branches were drawn using oil pastels which were then covered with pine needles and snow!
The results I think you will agree are stunning.
Stay warm this winter everyone!
