Braggy Mom Alert II: An Homage to My Little Artist

“I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.” ~William Morris

I published my first Braggy Mom Alert: An Homage to My Little Artist a while back showcasing my son’s artwork from years of lessons. Today, I’m gushy proud again to share part II with new pieces created within the last few years.

The point of these homage posts (aside from seeing my son’s face light up each time one of you leaves a complimentary comment), is to share the wonder and importance of children’s art with the Babble audience.

There are so many things we can do as parents to promote an appreciation of art. Trips to museums and libraries, involvement in community art instruction, and Disney Family’s tips for Encouraging Your Child to be Creative Through Art are wonderful ways to encourage our budding young artists.

With a little creative inspiration, our kids can go far!
