Creative Art Projects to Try With the Family

OKEMOS, Mich., – One of the best ways to express yourself is through art! Whether you're crafting, painting, or singing, art is one of the easiest ways to bring out your inner creativity. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, children that are exposed to art at a young age are four times more likely to receive academic scholarships and three times more likely to have improved school attendance! Getting your kids involved in the arts, whether it's through drawing, music, or even writing is an excellent way to ensure their success in the future. Check out our creative art projects to try with the family and enjoy spending some quality time together doing something new!

1. Spray Painted Nature

Start off with something quick and easy that everyone can do and personalize to their taste! All you need is a can of paint of any color, some gold spray paint (or silver, white, black, etc.), white canvases in whatever size you like, and leaves or flowers of your choice. 

2. Lemon Stamp
