Lesson Plans & Project Ideas

In this section, you will find Project Ideas and Lesson Plans to inspire you! Art is the process of creating, and these projects and lessons are intended to help you get started.  What you create does not need to be exactly what is shown. Rather, these are just examples of the wonderful artwork you can create when you use Faber-Castell Premium Children’s Art Products and your own imagination!  When you use exceptional tools, you will experience better outcomes. Great Art Starts Here!
