Painting with Kids on The Southern Institute

 I first started painting with my children (now ages 6, 5, 3 and 22 months) when my oldest two daughters were ages 3 and 4 years old. I'll be totally honest with you, in the beginning, when I was new to the painting routine, I'd break out in an actual sweat.
But, somehow I was convinced there was a way to paint with children and I was determined to find it. I was also convinced it would be good for them. Through the last few years, I have found a way and I have also seen how allowing them to express themselves creatively has given them confidence and a special way to look at the world.

...I'm sharing that way and tips for you over on The Southern Institute today. If you have young children, you're probably going to want to head over there so you can Pin this one!
