From the article:
You love your kid’s art―you really do. But when the school floods your home with a deluge of drawings at this time of year, you can easily feel overwhelmed. Pint-size Pollock or not, your child needs you to celebrate her artistic endeavors. This will send a clear message that you’re proud of your child, which boosts her self-esteem. But what do you do with all the art? Here’s a system to help you sort, save, and surrender your child’s artwork.
One of the most basic things you can do to save time and little egos is to establish a mini-museum now. As fresh pieces trickle in from school, take down older installations that your child has grown less attached to. Try stringing a clothesline across your child’s room or the playroom and hanging art from clothespins. Rotation is easy, the clothesline isn’t permanent, and clothespins won’t damage the artwork with holes.
- Plan to winnow at the end of the school year, or more often if you have more children. Until then keep art that’s not on display in a portfolio.
- Keep handy an oversize portfolio, mailing tubes and labels, your address book, a pen, a marker, and a wastebasket.
- Clear away clutter and dust from the area you’re working in.
- Make four piles: one for display, one for storage, one to send, and one for the trash.
