With three boys who all love to create art I have drawers and bins overflowing with their artwork. I have one bin filled with three-dimensional pieces. I keep the best of their drawings they make at home. And at the end of each school year when they bring their art portfolios home I photograph each piece and then file the original away in a large plastic bin. Each boy has his own bin and someday, if the drawings get tossed, I figure I'll still have the photographs.
So far I haven't done anything with the photographs I've taken of their art, but here's an idea I'm dying to try: creating a poster with thumbnails of all their art. How awesome would this look displayed in a hall or family room!
