Glenda, I teach lessons using Paint that comes with Windows, not only to my
students, but also through a workshop for the teachers in our county system.
Even though I teach middle school, my sister teaches elementary art and has
used some of these ideas in her classes.
I have several ideas...and can send these to you as attachments, if
