Great Techniques, Beautiful Paintings

My son loved taking art classes with Ms. Johnson. He learned great techniques and came home with beautiful paintings.  Ms. Johnson is wonderful with the kids.  I loved how she had them all gather in a group and say something positive to their peers' finished pieces of art work!
