If you have never done a project on Laurel Burch, I encourage you to do so. Her art is so colorful and happy, and FUN! Her story is very encouraging as well. I have done her cats before, but this year, I decided to do something different with the older kids. The lesson was about color and line, of course. I showed them step by step how to do the horses, and some of them did a great job! The 4th graders did the horses- It is a great project, and several parents put the finished projects in frames!
