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.

Adirondack Landscapes - Grade 3

My lower elementary students did a wonderful job with this lesson on landscape painting.  This past summer Georgia O'Keefe had an exhibit at the nearby Hyde Museum.  Because my students are all familiar with Lake George, it was easy for my them to understand how O'Keefe was inspired by this beautiful region. 
I recently was inspired by a lesson over at PAINTED PAPER, please check it out http://paintedpaperintheartroom.blogspot.com/2013/09/lake-george-ny-landscapes.html


  1. Beautiful! Each one is unique. I love the painterly quality of these!

  2. Ah, this is why I love living here! These are beautiful. Have you seen the O'Keeffe Lake George projects posted by Laura on her Painted Paper blog?

  3. Duh. If I had totally READ your whole post I would have known you'd seen the lessons at Painted Paper! Sorry!!

    While I'm here - will I see you at the NYSATA conference this November?


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