    I think you should frame those and start up your own gallery stroll! You never know, this could be a way for your boys to pay for college.

    I’m impressed. Did they seriously study Andy Warhol? Or just tell them to color on a black and white picture? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 2nd grade class cover pop art. They usually stick to paper sack puppets and how to cut in a straight line.
