This was one of my favorite classes to teach. The children loved it and the set up was so simple. We started with a short historical introduction about Vincent van Gogh's painting. This also taught the students that art pieces do not need to be realistic but rather can be abstract. These students were ages 7 and 10.

Welcome my lovely Beings! You can call me Sterp. When I come home from my corporate job I am welcomed by my YouTubing 10 year old gamer and my dancing 15 month old, a ginger husband who specializes in making me laugh every day, a cockatiel named Frida, and my husky Rocko, the Thief of All Food. I practice Buddhism to help keep my sanity while sitting in traffic and cleaning poopy diapers during scream fests. Life presents us with many challenges so I try not to take it too seriously.
