Earlier this week we posted a guide to decorating your walls with artwork. This week we are going to focus on the artists you have living in your home right now. Children love to explore their creativity with arts and crafts. In this guide, we’re giving tips for preserving and displaying your child’s masterpieces throughout your home.
Art created by children is often reserved for the refrigerator. LaFontsee, who has overseen the installation of a large collection of art created by children for patients at the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, tells us that art created by children can really lift one’s spirit.
When selecting frames to display your child’s creation, choose a standardized frame so you can easily exchange the artwork that often arrives daily with kids. “And as your child’s art collection grows,” adds LaFontsee, “their vision of the world is now presented as a visual record. It is so wonderful to see the world through their eyes.”
