Art From the Heart    
                              Jan/Feb 2012    
Kids Love to Create...
Give them a little purpose and direction (and a set of crayons or markers) and they are sure to create something that will melt your heart.
So check out our Featured Project this month - Kids Art Calendars - for kids to express what each month means to them. 
Also,  have you noticed the updates to the Gnaana Home Page?  There's a link there to our new Pinterest page - where we've filed all of our best images in one place.   
 Kids Art Calendars

Our 2012 Printable Calendars are now available blank – so your kids can fill each month with a custom piece of art!  Talk with your kids about what each month means to your family – the celebrations, the seasons and upcoming trips or visits from loved ones – and then have them fill the designated drawing space to their heart’s content.  Display them with pride anywhere in the house!  Read More...
