    Art Journaling for Kids|Tweens|Teens [Prequel]

    my daughter is gessoing the pages of a $1 book we found @ half price books

    Art journaling is a great outlet for kids that love... the freedom of a blank canvas, to explore color + images + words, to decorate their thoughts, to get messy with paints. Young kids are so free about exploring creatively. As they get older, they often get concerned with what others think, get more critical of their work, less free with their creativity, more likely to worry about "rules" for whatever form of art they are doing. That's why art journaling is important. It focuses on the DOING not the RESULTS. Kids, especially tweens and teens, are more likely to play creatively with freedom from constraints or expectations. For moms who art journal, it's also a wonderful way to stay close and keep the lines of communication open -- arting together.

    Read more about introducing art journaling to kids of all ages in the Abstract section!

    A little note to my lovely readers... the Abstract section of the blog is not updated often, so I post here to let you know to click over.
