Very nice project for young children. Also a very nice way to have the colour wheel in their bedroom as a poster!

My 1st grade students created this lovely and free painting. All I asked them to do was place a paper boat anywhere on the paper and use their imagination to paint the surrounding. One of my students  didn't want to use a paper boat, but wanted to paint a red boat. I let her do whatever she imagined. I think her painting came out brilliant. The #artproject took us around 50 minutes.

A very impressive #artproject! My 9-year-olds really enjoyed playing with colours while adding flowers on the branches! They freed themselves and perceived the flowers as colours without actually describing them.

1st grade self-portraits! We just needed a mirror so that the children could OBSERVE their faces and the general rules that apply to face structure. We were all very impressed by the results!

Non objective art project. Very useful project for ALL art students. The kids follow the very same general instructions and come up with a totally different result. This way they learn to value their uniqueness as artists and most important, as personalities.

The Happy Accident Project is very useful for all ages. Kids learn to make the best of their mistakes and they come to realize that there actually are NO mistakes! A project that is always fun to make!

A very popular winter art project and a very nice way o teach shading. All kids love drawing snowmen but this project gives them a new perspective! We used black paper and oil pastels.

My elementary students created this lovely landscape painting very easily. First they drew the mountains, then they picked their favourite colour and mixed it with black and white to create the tones. The kids and their parents were very happy! We came up with very unique and impressive landscapes made by beginners!

Almond tree project. These almond trees were painted by my 6-year-old students. We used Y to draw the branches and they were really proud of the outcome. So was I!

Mixed media project, inspired by Georgia O'Keefe. Students are from 7 to 11 years old. We talked about the different perspectives an object can be seen. They really enjoyed this project. I was really proud!
