"Dreamy Art" by Mrs. Danielson's Students!

WDC third-graders drew images of their favorite things they like to daydream about in Mrs. Danielson's art class. First, a photo was taken of the students, which they carefully cut out and glued it to their poster board. Then they started drawing their favorite activities, foods, hobbies, you name it! From playing baseball to traveling in space, they dreamed up lots of creative drawings!
