How To Make Painted Paper
Hi, I’m Laura Lohmann and I have been teaching Art for 20 years in Ohio. I love teaching students fun and exciting projects and hope that you will find my projects enjoyable for your students. I enjoy seeing my students start with a blank canvas and explore using art materials to create beautiful masterpieces.
