Back in the spring I shared an Ultimate List of Favorite Art Resources in my You CAN Be an Artist! 10 day series. Today I am expanding on that list to include more favorites and encouragement for you! (Plus, don’t miss the surprise at the end!)
I think this is a fitting conclusion to this 10 day series. And I hope these will spur you on!
How to Have Instant Success with Art – Yes, folks, it is just plain old praise for our efforts. Children are born with artistic gifts, and we are here to coach, praise and teach those efforts into a joy of painting.

And one of the ways we are doing a painting a day is with the wonderful Bonza Draw App by Amanda Bennett Unit Studies. This is an amazing resource – for just $1!! – and is perfect for multiple ages
