Displaying a child's artwork increases his self-esteem and helps organise and eliminate clutter. There are several methods for displaying artwork ranging from personal and creative to neat and organised.

Art Cabinets

Art cabinets and other collective displays are incredibly useful especially while children are young and beginning school. Art cabinets can hold about 50 pictures, one on top of the other, depending on the manufacturer and type of cabinet. They hang on the wall and feature a framed glass door that opens to a cabinet space. Every time your child brings a new picture home, just open the door and place the picture inside on top of the last. Not only will it help you display the most recent works, it will give you a place to save every treasured creation.

Digital Frames

Find ways to take advantage of digital storage. Take a picture of or scan your child's artwork and save it to a USB drive. Use the drive to load the images into the frame and watch the slide show of your child's drawings.

Homemade Frames

Have your child create his own frame. Take a trip to your local craft store to get project sheets for creating a personalised frame. You can also buy a blank, wooden, unfinished frame and paint it yourself. Decorate the frame further by gluing on jewels or other embellishments.

Shadow Boxes

Shadow boxes are great for larger items. For instance, if your child is in a ceramics class, has made something out of modelling dough or created any other three-dimensional piece of art, a shadow box is the perfect place to store it. Craft stores have a variety of shadow boxes available in different sizes, shapes and colours.
