Art Student Resources

Do your children just love to do art projects? Have you run out of ideas? Sick of cleaning up messes? These art links are just the ticket! Here you will find plenty of helpful art tips, which will keep you and the children busy for many days to come. From drawing lessons, to painting and the many origami designs and patterns, this is one page your family will return to again and again.

If you are anything like me, when it comes to art, I draw a complete blank. If it were not for the Internet, I would be shelling out hundreds of dollars each year, just for craft ideas and projects to do with my son. Be sure to visit the Museum section, many museums offer free days, free craft projects and special on- and off-line activities created especially for children.
