My favorite tips for saving artwork - it's impossible to hang on to everything. By the time they're 5, they've produced 5K would-be Van Gogh's. But it's impossible to hang on to everything. You have to really look at the space you have to store the artwork. I really like to encourage parents to make it a weekly thing. What did they bring home on a weekly basis? What did they bring home? What are we going to hang? And maybe it's you're picking out one thing a week to save. By the end of the month you have 4 amazing items that really represent the things that your child was going through at that time. And then at the end of the year, you have this really great collection and story. It's an edited and curated art collection that you and your child have enjoyed going through. And maybe at the end of the year, you save the top 10, and you can take pictures of the rest and feel okay letting it go.
