DIY Kid’s Art Gallery

DIY Kid's Art Gallery

Our DIY Kid's Art Gallery is an art activity we recently engaged in which we absolutely loved. It was so stress free and enjoyable. Did I mention simple? Open-ended? Creative? Inexpensive? Okay ... I won't go on and on.

This is how we did it.

Step One - Set up the art gallery.

We started with some old fax paper which was fixed to a glass sliding door with sticky tape.

On each strip, I drew some empty frames.

Step Two - Arm the Artists.

Each artist was allocated a row of frames and given a pen - and time to work on their own.

Step Three - Listen to the Stories

Once the artists had finished, they expanded on the stories they had created in their frames.

That's it. Easy. I love how, in the simplicity of the whole project, creativity, language and story-telling skills were engaged.
