Tools & Tips
Parents of small children are no strangers to the mountains of paperwork that come through the door when our children start school. While we love to see so much artwork being made and the artistic process being enjoyed, how can we possibly keep it all organized?
Most people think of drawing as a creative outlet. It’s an extra activity for the “creative types”. But that is not true. Drawing has very little to do with creativity.

Homework is going to be a part of your child’s school experience for many years. Whether you have a right brain thinker just starting school or an older right brain student, I have found lots of great ways to make homework time easier through the years.
