Colorful Art for A Kids Bedroom
Happy Friday. TGIF, seriously! We are headed up to Santa Barbara for 2 days and I promise to share photos of our road-trip.
I have been wanting to share some children's art that I recently launched. It was created out of my love for children's spaces and bright pops of color. I had this idea for a round graphic color wheel print in my mind for some time before I created it. I envisioned a piece that could be used for a children's room or as a colorful accent to a gallery wall or modern office space.
When designing the piece, I began by using tissue paper to delicately create each colorful slice of the wheel. First, I drew a large circle in pencil. I cut, measured and outlined each piece. I had to carefully slice and trim each color with an X-Acto blade, this one with a built-in light would have been insanely helpful for precision! Next, I arranged and collaged the tissue paper pieces. I decided to include all 12 colors; 3 primary and 3 secondary, plus 6 tertiary colors.
It is a colorful graphic that also teaches color mixing!
Now it is available in multiple sizes as a fine art print. I am experimenting with choosing the frame that I like the best. I think a simple white frame allows the color wheel to be the focus.
You can visit my original blog to see how I taught making a color wheel collage with kids and if you are interested in seeing more art projects made with kids, you can follow my Instagram where I post artwork created by children in the art studio.
Wishing you bright and colorful summer days ahead!
