Hi, I’m Laura Lohmann and I have been teaching Art for 20 years in Ohio. It’s a joy to share with students new and interesting projects. My hope is that my students will enjoy them. My students enjoy starting with blank canvas, and then exploring the possibilities of art materials to make beautiful masterpieces.
