Budding Artist






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. πŸ™‚ Luckily, they do not make that many art pieces or we would have to buy a bigger house.


I am a writer and an artist, at least in my mind. :) I love to read!

  1. Thank you. I love to inspire and be inspired. I think art is important whether it is as a hobby or career. I like seeing the sparkle in their eyes when I tell them people enjoyed them. πŸ™‚


  2. Jwls, I’m longing to know. Is it Jwls (my gosh, no vowels) or Jewel, or Julie? Do tell.
    You’ve got such a lovely theme going: children, art and recycling. Wish you would keep it up. I drop in on you now and again, hoping to see more. Put your fingers on the keyboard: asdf ;lkj and get started. πŸ™‚


      1. Yes please, keep typing Julia. I think it’s nice to address people by their name when I make a comment. It feels cosier, somehow.
