Painting with your child is such a wonderful opportunity to talk, share and learn to work together. It is a great bonding experience has you create art with your child. I am excited to spend the summer painting with Emma. I encourage you to try it out even if you are not a painter.
|I knew I wanted a painting for our guest room. Emma wanted to paint a blue rainbow. I love it.|
My tips to get started:
- You can usually find inexpensive canvas on sale at the art supply store and you can reuse it each time while you practice your art.
- If you are terribly afraid of you using more permanent paints with your child just start with kids washable paints on canvas, they work too!
- Get outside and paint. Let nature inspire you and your child.
- Have fun! No pressure, just paint and go with your child's ideas.
