    What a wonderful art lesson idea! The beautiful textures of your students’ mixed-media collages remind of me high quality illustrations. I also appreciate that you are teaching your students to recognize illustration as art by making connections with books. I am definitely going to try this project with my 5-year-old. Thank you for sharing all your beautiful ideas on your lovely blog!
