Kids Artwork Display — Challenge # 17
The last hurrah of summer is on, as the kiddos cling to every last minute of recreation before trudging back to school.
A good time to plan for the vibrant art projects they’ll be proudly carting home. Or your shelf of masterpieces from past years, crammed full like a too-small p.o. box. Brilliant—a testament to your child’s artistic genius no doubt—but a challenge to store and to show off.
My new friend, Jen Morris from Lancashire in the UK, fashioned this colorful and smart solution for displaying the artwork created by her sons Daniel and Noah.
Jen took photos of the each artwork, then made a grid collage in Photoshop. She framed the printed collages in IKEA frames that she had on hand.
Jen displayed the collages artfully with two stunning photos of the boys that speak volumes for the impact of negative space. Also framed in IKEA frames, Jen first spray-painted all the frames for her arrangement white. More details in Jen’s blog post here.
There’s your inspiration. For this week’s Challenge, show us how you display your kids (grandkids, nieces and nephews) artwork. Or have a go at a new display idea you’ve been dying to try, and report back to us on your results.
Use the simple Challenge entry form here to upload your photo and description of what you did. And be sure to comment on other Entries. The Kids Artwork Display Challenge is our little share-a-thon.
We can’t wait to see your display (and the kiddos masterpieces too)!
How cool for them to see their artwork on the Internet.
