Beginning Oils: 3-D Lighted Ball

This lesson is a great way to introduce the kids to their colors on their pallettes and also painting the optical illusion of a 3 dimensional ball.  They all did a great job on their first oil paintings!

Dinosaur Easel Paintings

3 weeks painting on the floor easels and these Dinos turned out great!! The kids learned how to draw Dinosaurs step by step and then drawing them large on their paper. Then they worked with large easel brushes and they chose their own colors and background designs. To see the full gallery of Dinosaur paintings please click here: Dinosaur Paintings Gallery
