I have seen this idea all over Pint*erest, but I never seemed to have a large enough wall to do it at our old house. I decided recently that the wall between our kitchen and library would be the perfect spot for an art gallery.
I didn’t need to search far for beautiful artwork. I have saved special works over the years and in recent months. All but one of these works of art were created by one of our children.
I think it is sad that many schools feel they no longer have time for art, and I also feel like children really do learn better when we allow their minds to explore art and create it with their own creativity.
Just today, I got out the paints for our three younger children to work with, and I am so amazed by their creations! They used pencils first to sketch out their paintings.
These will be entered into the county fair nearby in a few weeks! The best part of the county fair aside from seeing a ribbon by your work is seeing so many people admiring your works of art.
Our children always love going and hearing others comment on a piece they have created!
Don’t forget to ENJOY art with your children and students!
Today’s Tip: SAVE THOSE lids (from things like icing or butter tubs; they make great paint pallets. If you have time to rinse and reuse, great, but if you don’t, just toss and don’t worry about it!
