Our SPP Graduate Assistant (and graduate student parent in the Art Education program), Crystal Keldun, has pulled together fantastic resources from the web to create a children's art series called, Art is for Everyone! This series runs every other week for 5 sessions beginning 9/19. Art is for Everyone! offers an introduction to basic art concepts (primarily geared for children aged 5-9 but with activities to do with toddlers, too) paired with fun step by step activities that you can pick and choose from on your own time and at your own pace. Links for  each session will be posted below on the Friday before each session date.
