Home Art Gallery for Kids

Creativity expert Courtney Watkins points out a new display technique for children's artwork.

Mixed Media Collage

Have the kids create artwork with things like tissue paper, construction paper and chalk.

Texture Collage

Layer items on paper with a variety of textures such as bubble wrap, ribbon, flowers, jewelry and corrugated paper.

Wax Resist

Use wax crayons to color a picture on construction paper. Paint the paper with water colors, and the wax will resist the paint (as opposed to changing colors).

Art Opening

Labels for the pictures and refreshments can make a home art gallery opening feel more important. Invite friends and neighbors over to the review the results of the day's creativity.
