Art Resources

I will be loading a quick reference list to all my Visual Art resources on this page so that you can easily see what is available without having to hunt through all my posts. They will have a brief description and links to where they can be purchased as well as links to related posts.  I hope this will be helpful for all my followers. All titles on this page were created using Flaming Text Logos Design Tool.

Influenced by the Fauvist artworks of Henri Matisse and Franz Marc. Taught and photographed in a real classroom of 8 and 9 year old students. Pages oriented landscape so that they fit computer screens and can be projected up up onto a large screen for students.

  2. Hi Room1,
    Thank you for leaving a question. The best place to view my written-up art lessons are TPT where I have specified ages of students that made the work.
    I also have a website that you can reach by clicking on the RESOURCES button at the top of this page where more detailed information and video tutorials are also available. Enjoy:)
