Introduction to the class allowed students to work on multicultural art projects. Some worked on designing national flags, others took traditional foods or designs from their cultures and translated them into mini-masterpieces.
Shopping for some art supplies, I noticed that Hobby Lobby had some sales on Canvases, and Walmart had some sales on acrylic paints. While I would not suggest buying apple barrel paints as they are pretty watered down, it could work well for small canvas projects. My favorite brand of acrylics are liquitex, though they are hardly ever on sale. Tubes cost about $6 each but they are great for all surfaces from fabric to wood.
