My two sons that are in fourth and fifth grade created these art projects. I was delighted to see how much they have improved since last year. It could be that they have a more involved art teacher this year, rather than someone who just gave them colored pencils and a sheet that already had a shape. It goes to show what can transpire when a teacher chooses to teach a young person about the different media’s and drawing objects instead of coloring in objects.
I am having my husband make some frames for them. I think decorating with my family’s artwork gives them a boost to their self esteem and it is better than keeping them in a box collecting dust. I have to admit I am one of those that can’t seem to throw out any of their stuff. I am also going to use some of their artwork for scrapbooking pages so I can recycle them. I guess you could say I am sort of a hoarder of kids artwork. 🙂 Luckily, they do not make that many art pieces or we would have to buy a bigger house.
