    This one is amazing. 🙂 I am one of the Art teachers at GIA and we are done already with the basic lessons of our Creative Drawing. Our Part 2 will start in October and I am looking for some ideas to add to the list of my activities. This one caught my attention 🙂 I Will read and study this one. I also like the Color Study: Green activity. Thank you 🙂

    Hello there!! I love your page and am looking at the red color theory project. I have a class that is 2 hrs long. Would you say that is enough time for this project? 6-9 yr olds
