art education links for students and parents
I have found the following websites to be kid friendly and educational for art. However, the internet is a constantly changing place, and I cannot be responsible for the integrity of each site. Please supervise your children closely as they use the internet. Please e-mail with any website that you do not find appropriate. Please include the reason for your opinion.
