Encouraging art

This week school looms near. I wake up each morning thinking about planning, thinking about some new ideas. At the moment I’m quite excited at the prospect of some fresh new ideas and amazing artwork evolving.

As a teacher I think the evolution of an artwork stems from doodling and collecting ideas and developing them. Art journaling is such a good way to develop, collect and reflect on those ideas, in preparation for a finished piece. The Artful parent blog has a brilliant post on encouraging kids to art journal. It’s so good I’m even going to do some myself…with my own kids!

Have a read and let me know what you think.
