Did you enjoy this project? Yes! The kids loved the book and painting with their fingers. The adults enjoyed watching the art come to life, change direction and become Monet-influenced.
About: This artwork was inspired by the book, The Poppy Lady. We wanted to pay tribute to the heroes who fought and died in WWI and WWII. The last art piece honors those that are currently in service and fighting for peace.
