KINDERGARTEN “Sharpies + Kindergarteners = OH MY!”
Do you remember the first time you got to use a sharpie? Well, maybe not… But our little kindies might. They were so mesmerized when they were given a silver sharpie, a piece of fabric, and a template to draw. What an eye opening process and jaw dropping final piece!

1st GRADE “Pillow Talk”
Do your kids talk? Well their art sure does!

Final piece is mounted and framed in a shadowbox.
