Learning Art & Art History With See the Light Art Projects (Review)

Poppy Collages à la Georgia O’Keeffe Anything that involves paper, glue and scissors is a “Win” in our home. When Princess was 3, I would sit her down with construction paper and safety scissors to let her cut tiny little pieces of “confetti” for craft projects. It would occupy her for hours. She used to love to cut pictures out of magazines by theme or letter sound and glue them into a collage for school projects. Princess isn’t 3 anymore – she’s 13, and she still loves art, and likes to play with scissors and glue. In fact, Princess is
