Here is where I work on art stuff. I placed my desk here because it has the most light.
Here is my desk (before I cleared it off). I went for a natural, unorganized look for this photo.
I feel it’s important to display a few special things on my wall.
Including this little girl tenderly embracing a leaf. Pinned near her is a slice of paper my daughter colored with marker and left on the floor, and I found the colors too lovely to throw out. My daughter reminds me to remember the joy of experimentation.
This is my four year old’s work area. Paper taped to the chair, her little table covered with supplies, an ongoing collage on the wall, a drawing that she later cut out while it was still hanging on the wall, her feather crown she wears to “be magical” and a portrait of her looking like a serious fine artist.
You can create quite a lot in a small space. All you need is a surface that can be cleared off daily, (ideally) some natural light, organized supplies, ideas, and time well spent.
