Art Notes

Thanks so much for sharing your little Texans with me!! I have enjoyed seeing their smiling faces, and look forward to a wonderful year of Art!! This year we will be working with tempera paints, water colors, acrylics, soft pastels, oil pastels, black glue and the works!! With that said, we will have LOTS of smiling faces and TONS of creative (and messy hands!!) Donations of newspapers and baby wipes would be GREATLY appreciated as we continuously go through these on a daily basis!! Thanks for your help and support in making Bransford the BEST that it can be!!
