I don’t know how many of you might remember the board game Masterpiece. This was one of my favorite games as a child, not because of the strategy of the game, but simply because of the artwork. It came with a deck of brightly colored cards filled with famous works of art that I loved.
I took a lot of inspiration from those cards. I tried to recreate them & wanted to learn more about the artists that painted them. Not every kid my age shared in this interest.
Lucky for me, I have a little girl that does share in her mother’s passion for art. We draw & paint daily & have dabbled in a variety of different processes & mediums. Recently, I have been feeling inspired to introduce her to some of the great artists that fascinated me as a child. I have found a lovely array of kid’s crafts & projects inspired by some of these greats.
Please check out all of these wonderful artist inspired crafts. Follow the links or click on the photos for craft tutorials & to learn more.
