Children's Art Gallery
Creating spaces with children in mind. This year we have reworked our art studio area to provide children with ways to be independent artist.
Children help themselves to the paint and place it on paint pallets for color mixing opportunities.
Once done they clean up after themselves. No more teachers can I paint. They now know how to get their own paint, paper for their art and best of all they clean up the mess.
Each child also has a frame that they created themselves for their own art. Children get to choose the art they would like to display for others to see.

Would love to know more about your art area....... what did they make the frames out of? What are the pictures hanging from? Where did you get the squirt bottles? This is one area I really want to feel more comfortable letting the children have more freedoms.
The frames are made out of card board and we cut a square out of the center of each piece. The children painted their frames with different types of paint. We laminated sheets of construction paper to be the back drop of each frame and hot glued it to the frame. Next we hot glued a clothes pin to the top of each frame so that art could easily be replaced.

Tami - One more questions. Can you explain what the rod is that is holding the pictures on the wall? I have everything done except this final step. Thank you so much for sharing. : )
