I’m thrilled to announce that Sabine is offering HomeWorkshop.com’s readers 15% Off Your Order, when placed by June 8th. Just enter Coupon Code 15poff at checkout.
(and Grandmas, Aunties and Uncles!) Just what you’ve been waiting for:
- An easy, fun, creative Challenge that involves the kids,
- A great way to show off your child’s artwork online, and
- A fabulous prize that will make a memorable and personal Father’s Day Gift!
Kids’ art is uninhibited genius, don’t you think? Children freely slap chartreuse next to purple. They combine circles and a few confident lines and—Voila! There’s a self-portrait.
I’m so impressed with what my nine-year-old whips out with just a sheet of paper and a few colored pencils. Here’s a drawing she made yesterday, of her and her Dad having fun at the beach. Click on it and check out the little jeans!
Picture the pride you see in your child’s face when you display his latest masterpiece on the fridge. What if instead you have his artwork printed and stretched on canvas, and you hang it in a place of honor in your living space? Just watch the smiles multiply.
That’s mom-of-twins and lifelong art enthusiast and art teacher Sabine Schoepke’s mission over at MyKidsArtOnCanvas.com. Sabine affordably prints the kiddos’ creations on high-quality canvas of all sizes—rolled, stretched or framed.
Children’s canvas art…looks amazing…inspires children’s creativity and boosts their self-esteem.
— Sabine Schoepke
Sabine says, “Children’s canvas art not only looks amazing, but it also inspires children’s creativity and boosts their self-esteem.
Some of today’s canvas printing technology is so stunning, that turning children’s art into canvas art prints makes each one of them look and feel like a little ‘Picasso’. You should see the sparkle in their eyes…!”
There’s still plenty of time to make an incredible gift for Father’s Day, and that’s where our Challenge comes in.
My Kids Art on Canvas Father’s Day Challenge:
- Have your child (up through age 17) create his or her original drawing or painting themed “My dad and me,” depicting the child and his or her dad sharing a fun time together.
- The artwork can be any medium (watercolors, crayons, pencil, pastels, etc.).
- Scan your kid’s artwork OR photograph it (tape the artwork to a wall in a well-lit room and photograph it, ensuring the artwork fills the camera’s viewing area), and save the scan or photo image as a .jpg file.
- Then an adult (ages 18+) will upload the image to the Challenge Entry form here. Also type in the child’s description of the artwork and the special time with Dad that it depicts.
- Limit one entry per child.
- Be sure to upload your kids’ entries by Monday, May 24 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
The artwork will be displayed in this post here
on HomeWorkshop.com and the kids will be thrilled to see their artwork online. Each masterpiece will have its own link that you can point your friends and family to.
After the entry period, using Random.org, we will select three random winning entries that will win these great prizes from MyKidsArtOnCanvas.com, delivered to you in time for Dad’s fabulous Father’s Day gift!
So corral the kids, break out the art supplies and tell them to have a blast creating their special artwork!
We can’t wait to see what they do!

I thought this would be a great challenge for my 3 year old son to have fun with. We talked about some things that he does with Daddy and his favorite was watching the fireworks at Disneyland (he got to sit on Daddy’s shoulders). He used watercolor to paint the fireworks and had a great time painting – so great in fact that he was not at all pleased to be done. I managed to coax him away with promises of using his Buzz Lightyear laserbeam to get the evil Emperor Zurg 🙂
