Two King's Children, by Elenore Abbott, 1920

I love today's find,, an amazing website artfully designed by Heidi Anne Heider where we can learn a lot about the work of fairy tales writers and classic illustrators. It's a place to come back many times and a source of endless visual delight.

Virtual Art Museum

What a good idea!

Paco Arenas, an art teacher from Avilés, a small town in northern Spain, has created a virtual web museum showcasing the work of his pupils since he first started teaching art in 1971. I find so many of these works so interesting and fun to see! He has classified them by courses, techniques and themes according to the lessons taught in class. I'm showing just a few examples.(Thanks Paco)
