“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” – Pablo Picasso
This is SO true – life gets in the way! At Mila and Pheebs we love to support children who love art and crafts because it allows their creativity to flow without limitations.
Promoting art for children has been around for ages. Who remembers Blue Peter? Most of us in the team remember Blue Peter, the craft activities and the achievement of getting a Blue Peter badge – did any of you every get one? And what about Art Attack? Our favourite segment was the giant picture made with everyday items on a large space on the floor. They would zoom out to reveal, very clever.
Oooh and who remembers Hartbeat with Tony Hart with Mortimer and Wise! The plasticine models who caused mischief! Simple things to remember but the act of creating is so difficult to maintain when you run a busy household, job or have other demands which mean you just don’t have enough hours in the day. Children on the other hand…
We’re sure most schools will do something very creative to celebrate all things art but we thought we’d join in too!
We’ve browsed the internet to show you our top creative art projects with tutorials so that you can do at home. You could even adapt these to make something creative for Fathers Day on Sunday!
