I have been planning to show you the updated artwork display in the frames above Immy’s art space for a little while now.
Clockwise from top left:
1. Leaf printing 2. Paper and button collage person inspired by Tiny & Little 3. Immy’s button sewing that I love so much that I just can’t bear to take it down 4. Printed man created via the printmaking section of my book, Time to Create 5. Observational drawing of a Tasmanian Devil with oil pastels 6. Vegetable printing 7. Spontaneous drawing of a caravan created with metallic crayons on black paper.
If you look closely, you can also see a recycled box dragon over on the left hand side, next to the fake roses in a glass jar vase which was Immy’s contribution to our photo shoot! And just for interests sake, the hanging tubs are currently housing chunky coloured pencils, a set of Crayola Twistables Slick Stix and some paint dot markers. Paper, tape, glue sticks and the like are stored in the drawers and we keep a tub of interesting boxes, cardboard tubes and other recyclable bits and pieces in the pink tub.
For more information about the painted frames and fittings in our art space, check out the original post here.
I have also started presenting collage materials in glass jars and small jugs from the op shop. I love how bright and cheery they look.
“But I am not artistic!” “Art is just so messy!” “It takes longer to set up than my child spends making!”
If any of these sound familiar when it comes to children’s art at your house, my new book, Time to Create: Hands-On Explorations in Process Art for Young Children, might just be the answer you are looking for.
How do you display your children’s artwork?
