Science of Art and BIG Pictures

I'm at the MiAEYC Conference in Grand Rapids.  I always have such a fantastic time learning and growing when I have the opportunity to sit in on and present professional development sessions.

This year, I am presenting on the Science of Art and BIG pictures!
I'll be talking about things like pendulum painting....

Hope to see you there!
