Are your kids constantly bringing home artwork? I know mine do.
I love my children’s artwork. It is colorful, organic and completely raw. I can see how their little minds worked through the creative process.
So what do you do with all of that artwork?
I have to confess that I do not keep it all. I do sort through it and keep the pieces that I am attached to. But it’s still A LOT of artwork.
For a long time, I would tuck it in a drawer and tell myself I’d deal with it later. Well, after 2 kids, the amount of work began to take over several drawers. It was time to do something. Not to mention that our family downsized our home and storage space was at a premium.
I discovered the My Art Place Portfolio. This kids’ art portfolio is divided into eight color-tabbed sections for organizing art projects by year, subject, teacher, medium or any way you wish. The expandable art folder includes ample room to hold paper sized up to 12″ x 18″!
Once I got the artwork organized, I decided it was time to find a space to display it.
There are many ways to display your child’s artwork. So here are a few of my favorite displays for children’s artwork.
Framed Collage Wall
This is a clean look. You can buy the same frame in different sizes or different frames in the same color. If you intend to change out the artwork, attach them with command strips for easy take down.
Canvas Art Display
If you have a lot of canvas paintings, create a wall collage.
Wire Hanging System
