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.

Rousseau inspired art

Using oil pastels and black watercolor wash my lower elementary students set out to imitate the beautiful work of Henri Rousseau.
Some of my students chose to add the black outline before the wash was added while others chose to use the black for definition afterwards.
Since the children in this group are first grade through third grade students, the results show a wide range of skill sets.
