"Thanks Britt Curley for your presentation on the Draw, Paint, Make workshop. You had so many good tips. And I loved your project so much that I did it twice. It is taking me forever to get through the workshop, just on the second presentation. But have gotten so much from those two. Thank goodness we have a year to play with it!"
"Patty, this was another winner from the summer workshop! It took us three one hour sessions to finish. I really saw some amazing results. But, more importantly, the kids had fun, learned a lot, and loved their pieces. I even got a hug today. :) How had I never heard of construction paper crayons?! They are the bomb!What a great project! Thank you!"
