I love using my kids’ art to decorate our home. I think it is such a special way to celebrate and applaud their creativity while capturing and appreciating this special season of them being little. I know I have shown you my art wall in a lot of posts.
There are only two pieces on my art on that I did. I’m sure you can’t tell which two they are ;). Most of the art on this wall my boys created at my favorite local art studio, Out of the Box Art Studio. Have you heard of them?
Although we do a LOT of art around my house, I send my boys to a summer art camp at Out of the Box Art Studio every year. They have the best projects and the kids always have so much fun. Most of the teachers are friends of mine and I grew up taking art from the Owner & Director, Juli. They are so sweet and encouraging with all of their students.
I worked at OOTB for a little while. I got to the genuine love of art from the owners and staff while I was emerged in this great environment weekly. I loved it. Now that I stay home with my kids, I love to send them there for a great experience.
Along with my art gallery wall, I used my boys art pieces from camp to help stage all my shelves while our house is on the market.
Their pieces are my favorites. I have already signed my boys up for a camp this summer, and I can’t wait to see what they bring home!
As well as having awesome summer camps, they have art classes all year-long. This studio teaches potters wheel, clay hand building, drawing, oil painting, acrylic, watercolor, and multi media. They have after school classes but also classes during the day for homeschoolers. I have got to get my boys in one for this coming fall.
If you fall in love with this place, as I have, you could use them to host a birthday party or any other special event as well. I had a bridal shower there years ago, where we all painted a piece of pottery for the bride. It was a fun, hands on, and a personal gift to give.
Their newest feature is to do mobile classes where they will come to you. So unique and awesome! I love how all this can be for ages preschool all the way to adult. Are you craving to do some art now?
I have some REALLY good news for three of my local metro Atlanta readers. Out of the Box is graciously offering up a FREE drawing or painting summer camp to three of my readers! The camps are registering right now. You can view them all on Out of the Box’s site here. You all know that I am that hands on mom, and I get nervous about leaving my kids in new places. I trust Out of the Box and am so honored to be able to help promote them to all of you.

We will be in contact with the winner (via email) on March 6th, to let you know how to register for your camp.
