My Art Studio Expanded for Kids

My students now have their own space to create art in my studio!
In older posts, I mentioned that there was some renovations to make my art studio kid friendly.  The kids have had their own space for about a month now.  Here are some photos where they've been spending their time getting creative.

I have offered several stations for the children to branch off and do their own thing, such as painting, drawing and sewing.

Crafting/hand sewing station

Children have the opportunity to use the sewing machine with assistance, one at a time

Stay tuned as I plan on updating this post with photos of what the room looked like before!

Artistic Yarn Wrapped Bottles by the Little Wonders of Wonderland

Art classes have been up and running in my art studio for my students, ages 2 through 6.  We are well into the school year and starting to get into some more creative art with the kids.  Below are some decorative bottles and jars crafted by some of our 2 and 3 year-olds.  They enjoyed putting a creative spin on wrapping the bottles in yarn.  They chose their own bottles and yarn and each one had a great original look with a glowing translucency when displayed by warm lights.

This project is fun for kids and adults!  If you are interested on how to make these yourself, please please visit my DIY blog below.
