Displaying Children’s Artwork
Why is it critical to display children’s artwork in meaningful ways? Have you ever seen a child’s work rich in colour, detail and clearly demonstrates significant time spent? Have you seen that loose piece of paper posted randomly on a wall or taped to a cupboard? The edges begin to curl, the colour fades. Ask yourself if that was your own work how might you feel?

Drawing on Buddha boards provides an opportunity for children to use a different approach to drawing. Using fine motor, the application is a softer touch. Children come to discover how much pressure to apply to obtain a variety of brush strokes. Buddha boards also create a sense of calm focus.
“And then it disappears and we can start over again”.
