We’re an artsy type of family. On any given day you’ll find the table of our breakfast nook covered with paper, scissors, crayons and the like. I’ve never thought of our “ART” as something to celebrate, but thankful the Arkansas Art Center did!
I’ll tell you more about why we were celebrating, but first here are 3 ways to celebrate children and art.
1. Let kids CREATE! Yes, creating art is messy, but give your children time to explore with glitter, markers, tape, glue and paper.
2. Let kids display their art. We always have a fridge that is covered with artwork. We rotate these out often.
3. Visit art museums as a family and enjoy art together. I’ve taken my kids to museums from young ages. I let them know expectations before we go (no running, no touching), and praise them for good behavior. Usually 20-30 minutes is the maximum time we spend there, but we enjoy looking at art together.
We went to this particular museum because Bella’s artwork was chosen for a special exhibit!
