I thought it would be fun to have place to display some of the endless art projects and cards I’m the lucky recipient of as the mom of 5 creative kids. I think it was Picasso who said that every child is an artist, until they grow up and forget how…
Rather than posting pictures individually, I thought I’d make a page that I can update any time with new artwork, so that grandmas, aunties, and any other children’s art aficionados, can check whenever they like. I’ll also have a place to look back at their art, without keeping it all forever and swimming in paper clutter…
Most recent work will be at the top of the page, and I’ll label my little artists’ work by age. Hope you enjoy it!
