  7. I am sooo very glad I have found your website! I am a stay at home mom with a degree in Art Edu. My oldest just finished her kindergarden year and all that came home from art class were pencil on paper drawings. I was disappointed and even more so when I found out our art teacher’s budget is $1 per student for a whole year. thank you for providing amazing ideas at a decent price! I am now considering my self a stay at home art teacher. 🙂
