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.

Matisse inspired paintings grades 1-3

I teach a mixed class of first through third graders in my Montessori school setting.  My classes are all pretty big consisting of twenty two to twenty four students per class.  I was pleased at how well the students did with this challenging lesson based on Matisse's fish bowl painting the focus was color and pattern.
