Visit the dm art center — free admission, Grant Wood’s American Gothic, and a fun shop full of crafty ideas to copy. Examples of fun stuff: a purse of crocheted pop can tabs, a purse of woven candy wrappers, stools covered with uninflated balloons, and stuffed felt flowers. All feasible to make in my mind. Never a lack of ideas here.
And the front desk has a picture study guide available for you home schoolers out there.
