Thank you to Amazon Studios and Creative Galaxy for inspiring this sponsored post about making your own Monogrammed Initial Canvas Art.
I’ve been on a mission this year to add new life to each room in my house.
Whether it be new wall decor, furniture or simply painting my front door, I really enjoy visualizing a craft or design and then creating it.
It’s no surprise to me that my kids are following in my footsteps. Any time it rains my 6-year-old asks if we can do a craft. It’s a fun project to look forward to when we can’t play outside.
We’ve been getting a lot of our inspiration from this fantastic, interactive Amazon Original Kids show. It’s called Creative Galaxy.
Creative Galaxy, from Out of the Blue Enterprises (Super Why!, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood), is a “make-along, create-along” animated art adventure series that celebrates creative thinking through crafts, story, music, and dance.
The jingle is so catchy you will be singing it even when your kids aren’t around! ?
The series follows the adventures of Arty and his silly side-kick Epiphany, as they travel around the galaxy to solve problems using many different forms of art.
I love that each episode reinforces to kids that art is all around us in many different forms. The interactive storytelling really has encouraged my daughter to become excited about her creative ideas and to make art.
Our most recent project was a Monogrammed Initial Canvas. It’s super easy to do and adds a trendy, personal touch to your child’s bedroom or playroom. I’m actually going to hang canvas in my new office space!
Monogrammed Initial Canvas Art
- 10×10 White Artist Square Canvas (you could also use an 8×8)
- Acrylic Paint in colors of your choice
- Pom Poms or other material used for painting
- Painter’s tape
Using your painter’s tape, make your monogram initial. Since we’re using tape, it’s going to be more of a block letter.
Put your paint colors on a paper plate or piece of aluminum foil. Dip your pom pom ball in the paint and have your child dot the canvas. Repeat this step until satisfied with design.
Let the paint dry.
Once paint is dry, peel off painter’s tape to reveal the monogram letter.
The second season is of Creative Galaxy is kicking off on September 16 with twice the fun. Season 2 features 11 brand-new episodes with many famous friends! Brooke Shields, Jason Priestly, Samantha Bee, and Lisa Loeb are just some of the celebrities who lend their voices to characters who appear throughout the show.
Be sure to check out the new season of Creative Galaxy. I know your kids will become inspired to create something wonderful.
Have you ever seen Creative Galaxy? If so, what kind of art have your children made?
