This video offers some creative up-cycled canvas ideas for painting as well as some tips for creating the right environment to encourage creativity while painting with children. Miss Amy from the DWFM Kids Corner shows 4 open-ended painting projects using waste paper from around the house and invites you to come up with your own alternatives to using fresh new paper for each painting project.
The DWFM Kids Corner is a Windsor arts initiative that started in 2018 to teach families up-cycling crafts for free. For two years, the Kids Corner operated as a drop-in style craft booth that that that ran every Saturday morning during the Downtown Windsor Farmer’s Market (DWFM), but due to COVID it has gone digital.
The Kid’s Corner is just one of the many initiatives within the DWFM that fosters community and learning. Check out the https://www.downtownwindsor.ca/farmers-market/ to learn more about everything the DWFM does.
The Kids Corner is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and WindsorEssex Community Foundation.
