Saturday Is For Art

Today is Valentine's Day. Empty candy boxes from any time make great shadow boxes for some fun art projects. Art does not have to be an oil painting on canvas or a sculpture made of marble. Art can be made from paper, cardboard, cereal boxes, glue, and acrylic paint. Kids can have fun making shadow boxes too. Today, I am going to post two shadow boxes I made from Whitman Sampler candy boxes, with some cardboard, glue, gesso and acrylic paint. The first one is The Butterflag and the one below is Level Playing Field. Everyone have a happy Valentine's Day, and don't forget to visit your local art museum. Go to an art museum and experience a trip back in time.
