Making Memories (I Can Proudly Hang on My Wall)

I was ecstatic to say the least when Little Abstract reached out to me and wanted send my little monsters one of their art kits in the color choice of my choosing. Winning! I picked a color scheme that went along with my main living area.  And as soon as it arrived we were ready to get to work.  IMG_1165.jpg

A little back ground info before I show off our masterpiece. Little Abstract was created by an amazing artist, Jeremy Brown to allow parents and children to work to create a one-of-a-kind piece of neo-expressionist abstract art.

Neo-expressionism is a style of late-modernist or early-postmodern painting and sculpture that emerged in the late 1970s. Neo-expressionists were sometimes called Neue Wilden (‘The new wild ones’; ‘New Fauves’ would better meet the meaning of the term). It is characterized by intense subjectivity and rough handling of materials. (Wikipedia).  Pretty sure this was named after my wild ones.

The kit comes with everything you will ever need to make a masterpiece:

  • Directional booklet providing creative & inspiring questions for the kids to answer by writing or drawing their responce in specific areas on the screen print. (Sample questions below)
  • 24″ x 36″ screen print on archival 200gsm French paper stock
  • Kids black ‘pop-artist’ sunglasses with signature logo (shown on Brooklyn)
  • Set of Little Abstract stickers
  • Special white colored hardened wax pencil
  • Special black colored hardened wax pencil

 

One of my most favorite parts about this project was watching little sis look at big sis for direction. It was too cute to watch them work on this together (thanks for the two pencils).  Check out their Instagram for more inspo.

 

Also keep in mind my girls are 2 and 4 so when we went through the prompts provided we still ended up with VERY abstract art. “draw your hero” appears to be a straight line but I know they meant to draw me. Friends and families with little ones, act surprised when I buy these for all of you for the upcoming holidays. You can thank  me later when its not a toy taking up a floor but instead on the wall!

 

Pretty sure this color combo was made for my house.  Look at it in its new home. Perfection. My girls are so proud of it to they show all of the visitors that come by what they did.

    That’s actually kinda cool. I can’t wait to do activities like these with my daughter. She’s 18 months now, so she’ll have me cleaning more than anything lol, but I think it’s a great activity to help them make something beautiful.

      Best part about this is there is no mess! Colored part comes painted and the kids do the drawing on the top to personalize it. My youngest is 2 and her “art ” was alot of chicken scratches.
