The Hallway Gallery

My daughter has turned her hallway into a changing gallery of her
children's artwork. Some of the art is from school and some is made at home.

At the bottom of the stairs she painted and stenciled her sign directing "visitors" to the stairway gallery. Then she hung their artwork. Simple but a great way to show lots of art (the fridge just isn't big enough).

I've placed here the main gallery and some close-ups so you can see what they all do. She definitely is creating a home to
encourage them to make art.

Next post on this subject will be the kid's bathroom. I neglected to take pictures of my daughter's bathroom which is also painted, stenciled and decorated. Oh, well, I can always do it next visit.

Wonderful idea your daughter is employing for the kids' art. We raised six kids and there was never enough room for anything!

What a clever daughter you have as well as clever dogs. Dogs are so immediate. It is one of the things we love them for.

This is just adorable! When my artsy daughter was growing up, there was never a lack of work to be hung. I ended up getting a *really* big bulletin board that held a rotating display. Using the hallway this way is very clever :-)

This is a really great idea. My 9 year-old son is a very prolific arist and so I like the idea of having a rotating display. It is nice to know that there are parents that still appreciate and encourage the arts and creativity.
