Some projects may include: mosaic stepping stones, acrylic animal paintings, silhouette self portraits, clay leaf impressions, colorful abstract art, ladybug mandala rock painting, geometric foam prints, color mixing studies, Matisse colorful collage, Jackson Pollock splatter art, glue resistant insect studies, nature drawing, games, art history and more.
