MMA - Helen Frankenthaler blog post

also Soak-Stain Technique blog post

Helen Frankenthaler "Soak Stain" Art Lesson for Kids

100 Watercolor Cards & Envelopes, Cold Press, 5" x 6.875"

I decided to join Lotus Stewart's full Art History Kids website (The Studio) and get access to her past lesson plans. I think it will really help me this year to have so much already done for me. Helen Frankenthaler is in the Archives.
