Magic Marker Monday — Hot Air Balloon… — 5 Minutes for Special Needs

Magic Marker Monday — Hot Air Balloon…

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

Welcome to Magic Marker Monday! If you haven’t heard about Magic Marker Monday yet, click here and then hurry right back…



Our very first school art project of the year! We homeschool and decided to give the Atelier art curriculum a try this year.

I have to say, so far I’m impressed! We’re using Level 4 and first lesson focused on use of color, line drawing and perspective. Even the 5-year-old enjoys the DVD lesson format (even though he decided to paint storm clouds instead of a hot air balloon).

Can’t wait to see all your back to school art!
