Adults, small children, tweens, and seniors will draw or paint aerial views of tulip fields in the Netherlands. This will be such a great inspiration — shouldn’t we design flower gardens in Yonkers? Later we will combine all the designs into one large aerial view of flower gardens.

“Line printing is a process for creating lines that makes use of a simple printmaking technique. Using the line tool, children have control over their marks and often find that they are able to print structures before they can actually draw them.
A line becomes a tool for thinking when it is used to discover the beginnings of writing, reading, mathematics and design”. —C.W.Topal
