3 Ideas On How to Display Your Child's Art

by Eric Von Lehmden | February 16, 2012

Does your child love to draw, paint and create wonderful little pieces of art? Of course they do. Kids love to explore their creativity...at home and at school. You probably have a stack of their creations lying around the house...thinking if you had the time you will figure out what to do with all that wonderful art from your talented little artist. Here are 3 ideas that you can use to display your little ones art. You will be surprised too...quite often when their art is displayed together it has a pretty cool abstract art installation feeling to it...plus some sparkles, macaroni, and plenty of elmer's glue.

Idea #1 - Create a photo canvas collage.

If you have so many pieces of art you couldn't possibly display them all...but you love them all...this might be your solution. Scan or take photos of your child's artwork. Then lay them out in Photoshop save that file and upload it to us and we will take care of the rest. If you don't have a scanner or a camera to take photos of the artwork, no worries. Just contact us at 888.784.5553 and we can make arrangements to get everything taken care of for you. From the scanning to the layout we can help you create canvas photos of your child's artistic creations. The really cool thing (at least to me) about doing this type of display is that it really can go anywhere in the house. Definitely a great conversation piece and looks like modern art.

Idea #2 - Frame a selection to create a wall collage.

Buy several of the same color and size frame. Pop the artwork in the frame and start to hang them. Hanging them in a symmetrical way will be challenging, but it gives the playfulness of the artwork a little bit of order and allows grown ups and kids alike a chance to enjoy them.

Idea #3 - The clothesline effect - Hang their artwork on a wire hanging system.

This is a fun idea if you want to rotate artwork in and out. Also great to hang good report cards on as well. I think you can buy this wire hanging system at Ikea. Pretty simple just clip them up there. But again, it makes for a fun visual and would be perfect in a playroom or in a high traffic area like the kitchen or mudroom.

We would love to see what you come up with. Your little one will feel so special when you make their artwork into a permanent piece in your home. If you need our help creating your canvas photo prints or even printing them on some of our fine art photo paper just give us a shout. We can help you with this project or any you may have....I take that back, we can't come over and fix your plumbing or build a deck for you...but when it comes to canvas prints you know where to come.

Tips-n-Tricks #109

If you love the latest bouquet of flowers you got and want to take an artistic photo of them one idea would be to set them in an area with plenty of window light and have someone hold a blanket or sheet as the back drop (try black or white first). Take close ups of the flowers without your flash using only the window light.
