Is your child a mini-Picasso? Your teen the Next Best Thing in the art world? Tired of sneakily tossing armfuls of artwork in the trash, but have no idea how to preserve it otherwise? Or perhaps you’re just tired of trying to come up with gifts for all of the people in your children’s life. We have the solution!
Budding Artists is a Canadian company, based right in London. Maria takes your child’s artwork and turns it into a useful and treasurable item of your choice: clothes, jewelery, bags, stationary, keepsakes and more! Catalogue – Budding Artists It’s a simple process – the Budding Artist kit has all of the tips and instructions and the paper for them to create on. Choose your medium from crayon, marker, tempera paint, water colour, pastels and/or paper collage and have your child get to work. Art Guidlines for Budding Artists Fill the page and their work is done! Whether it’s a two year old’s first crayon scribbles or a self-portrait of a serious art student, it will be perfect.
My four year old created a multi-coloured unicorn drawing with a pink background using crayons. We looked over the catalogue of products and she selected a travel mug for me, as she thought it was something I would use everyday and think of her. Turns out, she was right! The stainless steel, BPA-free travel mug has a great lid and washes up easily, not to mention the beautiful unicorn. My daughter is quite proud of it!
