We love art at our house, but I’ll be the first to admit it can be an intimidating activity to tackle as a parent.  How best to set up an art station?  How to control the mess?  What to do if your child doesn’t like to get his or her hands dirty?  There’s a lot to think about when it comes to art!  To help you out, here are 3 great posts with art tips for after school that will help make art much less feared and much more FUN!

Bring on the art!
