While I am not an amazing artist, I do like art and want my kids to develop appreciation for it in addition to learning the basic skills. Art is FUN!
Also, Princess' REALLY likes art projects. She loves participating in them and does them much longer than anyone else. I need to have lots of fun art just for her interests.
This art project was about lighting, seeing the way the shadows change the snowman's coloring. I got the idea here. (And I LOVE pinterest for kids art ideas. It has helped me discover some awesome art teacher blogs full of ideas!) Plus drawing snowmen is fun when you have no snow!
