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.

Indian corn grades 1,2 and 3
We talked about shape, organic verses geometric. We looked at the patterns on the corn. We admired the wonderful toned down color palette.
We began by drawing the elongated oval shape of the corn. We added vertical lines with black crayon then horizontal lines. We painted in the newly created pattern with tones of red, orange, yellow, green and brown.
The husks were the last detail to be painted.
At the end of the lesson I introduced them to the story of the "Three Sisters" corn, green beans and squash.
All the students were successful with this lesson which covered one forty minute art class.
