Your Child’s paintings and drawings, no matter how abstract, are an important part of expressing themselves and developing their creativity. It’s become even better in the last 10 years, with digital media and scanning capabilities becoming available to the general public at affordable prices, so we’re constantly thinking of new ways to involve our children’s art into our lives. One awesome way to do this now is to get their artwork printed onto canvas, making it a little more permanent than paper blue tacked to your fridge.
Pick the right picture
This is probably the most important aspect when getting a printed canvas, so which should you choose? A lot of people pick their child’s first ever drawing or painting as it is an obvious milestone for them, however, it could be good to pick their first holiday picture or any other event, especially if you feel that it helps represents who they are as a personality.
There are also all the different types of frames to consider when getting one printed. If they are a prolific painter then it may be worth looking at a montage photo print from tradecanvasprints. They do things like a tile mosaic montage, which takes from 15 to 50 pictures and shades them so they form one larger picture overall. This would be great if they ever did pursue a career in the arts, as you could take all their childhood pictures and use them to form their final university painting, or first sold picture, to symbolise the creative journey they’ve taken.
How can you use them?
An obvious thing to think of would be to stick it straight back on your kitchen wall, right where it was before, but think outside the box! They’re now really cheap to buy, so they’d make fantastic gifts for relatives or godparents, especially if they were there when your child made the original picture. Plus, if they really develop their artistic skills over the years, the originals may be worth millions!
