A while back my daughter and I had fun experimenting with yarn and canvas to create a few interesting pieces of abstract resist art. I stumbled across those pieces the other day and remembered how much fun they were to make. Looking at them, gave me idea. I love birch trees and thought that this technique might work well for making birch tree landscape paintings. With a little help from my little girl, we played around with this method. We love the results and are excited about how simple and pretty these are.
It brings me so much joy knowing that my daughter loves art as much as I do. My five-year old spends the vast majority of her free time drawing, painting or crafting. It is wonderful to be able to share this with her.
I introduced her to the great artists early on and her curiosity and love for them has grown and grown. She wants to read books about them (We included a list of some of our favorite kid’s book about famous artists at the bottom of the post.) and look at pictures of their different artwork. She wants to know everything about them and loves trying to recreate their work and experiment with each artist’s techniques. It is amazing. Sufficed to say, artist inspired art projects have quickly become a favorite in our home. Here is a great collection of some of our favorite artist inspired projects for kids.
