Kids Art Blogs by the Rockin Art Moms

Hello, my friends!

I’ve been wanting to write a post for a while now to share some of my favorite kids art blogs to give you some new go-to sites for children’s art ideas. And many of my faves, such as Meri Cherry, Art Bar Blog, and Babble Dabble Do are part of a group called Rockin’ Art Moms—which I’ve now joined!*

Sooo… I decided to write about the group instead, since it would’ve basically been the same post anyway!

Some of these sites are ones that I share on my facebook and pinterest pages regularly, and some are new to me, but in exploring them, they are all rocking it with the kids art!

So, check these kids art blogs out for new, creative ideas for your family or classroom.

If you like what you see, subscribe to their feed if you’re a feedreader kind of person, sign up for their newsletter if you like your inspiration delivered to your inbox, or follow them on Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram if that’s where you go for your fresh ideas.

*Okay, so this group first came on my radar earlier this year. After a long-ish recovery from my crash, I poked my head up and started looking around at the world around me. And I saw this awesome group! And I was immediately jealous that A.) I didn’t think to start it myself and B.) that I wasn’t a part of the group!

Follow The Rockin' Art Moms Boards on Pinterest for Creative Inspiration, Kids Art, and Tutorials So I sat down and had a little talk with my jealous self and told it that yes, I, too, was a rockin’ art mom, and no, I didn’t necessarily need to be a part of a group for that to be true. And that I should celebrate them and what they were doing because we had the same mission—to encourage children’s art and creativity as much as possible. Which is what I’ve been trying to do.

But! I met Jeanette Nyberg from Craftwhack (who feels like a sassy version of my soul sister) at a conference last weekend and she/they invited me to join them!

I had been too shy and proud to ask to join and didn’t want to crash their party. And apparently they thought I was too big and established.

I’m practically a granny in the blog world, having been doing this for almost 8 years! But I’m like my grandma, who is 87 but says she still feels 16 inside. I just want to play! And hang out with the cool kids!

So… Now that I’ve share all that with you, you can, of course, see right through me. I’m so not cool. :) But I’m okay with that. And I’m excited about joining this group of Rockin’ Art Moms!

    Love this group! I really appreciate your honesty in this post too. Your awesome web presence doesn’t mean you’re not a real person behind the blog ;). I’m an art mom who dabbles in my spare time when I’m not working 50 hours a week at my day job. I love your blog and follow most of those on the list too. Glad to see you a part of it now too.

    Jean, it is a privelege on so many levels to be a part of your creative — and dynamic, original space. I love your work and love Jeanette’s spunk, talents and charisma for bringing you to us — and to share with this exciting group! It frankly feels a little surreal… Because, yes: you’ve become a role model and inspiration for so many in this group. Although I am a “baby” in terms of blog experience , I’m often feeling like I have a granny’s technological grasp and like you — any granny reference is ok, too, because my grandmother was one I wish I could be! I love your young, fresh, voice and your beginnings with this group only emphasiz the wonders that join creative, open-hearted people. It is because of a 4 day mad-US blitz last year, I where I was fortunate to sit down at a dinner with Meri and fell under her charm — and begin my entry to this dynamic group! Thank you so much for such a lovely post. I pinch myself to be here! Warmest wishes and ok, let’s get this show on the road!

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful blog. This is the best idea for the group. As I am a father of one, my son loves to draw painting, I decided to turn them into products, pillow-cases, phone cases, etc with the help of and it looks amazing.
