Doing Art and Displaying Art

Thanks to art teachers at Martin Luther King Day Care Center and at Yorkship Elementary School in Camden,
children are taping into their creative cores. Ms. Miyet held the hand of 15 month old Amari holding the brush to paint this abstract design and the 4 month child expresses delight in what he sees!

Maybe this world would be a better place if kids’ artwork were displayed EVERYWHERE!

Towards that end I laminated a mural by Mr. Blake’s 8th grade class at Yorkship School for outdoor display on my chain linked fence – behind the Weeping Cherry tree. See how it humanizes the environment!

If you want to display kids’ artwork outside – you need to make a color copy of it (so the original can be displayed inside) and laminate it. Then get a piece of luan board, glue the artwork to it, punch holes to hang it, and then polyurethane it. It will last outside for a long time.
