I am still totally loving our new (ish) art display wall! It makes displaying and changing out the kids’ artwork much quicker and easier. What comes down goes into the art storage bins and what goes up is fresh and new. Plus the frames allow us to group art by type or artist, which creates a nice cohesiveness to the display.
Here’s what’s on the wall now:
Salty watercolors by Maia (the ghost) and Daphne (the swimming pool at top right and the girl on the bottom) as well as a couple of collaborations. I drew the spider web with glue and Daphne asked to paint it…
…and Maia drew the portrait of Daphne specifically for her (Daphne) to paint.
Here are a couple of drawings/paintings by Daphne using new push-up watercolor crayons. The jury’s still out on them. They look a little pale to me, but maybe that was just Daphne’s light touch and choice of colors. I think we need to experiment with them a bit more. We really love our other watercolor crayons, though, and it would be hard to take their place.
I wrote about Daphne’s red painting of the skateboarding clown here.
Here are a couple more Halloween salty watercolors by Maia: a pumpkin and ghost on black construction paper and a spider on white.
Plus her marker drawings on the blank notecards which I wrote about when I first shared our new art display frames.
And, finally, some spin paintings the girls made recently with autumn colors.
I love the mix of favorite techniques (spin painting, salty watercolors) with the seasonal colors and themes and the creativity that my kids (ages 4 and 8) each express at their own developmental level.
What kinds of art have your kids been creating recently?
