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.

James Rizzi skyscrapers
They were so colorful and fun I had to give it a try with my own art students. I did this lesson with grades 4 through 6. We began by viewing images of Rizzi's skyscrapers. We noted in particular the wonderful colors and bold lines. Watercolor paints were used after the drawings were done. We used both watercolor cakes and liquid watercolor. It took three 40 minute art classes.
Enjoy these whimsical little masterpieces.
