Introducing... My First Art Gallery!

If you are a parent with young kids (or even not-so-young kids) who create lots of art in their classes, preschool or elementary school then you are probably faced with the age old decision of what to keep and how to store the mountains of paper creations.  If you are sentimental like me, then you want to save every drawing, every scribble, every collage of random objects... but where do you draw the line when these creations take over your closets and attics?  How long do you save it?  How can you show it off?

My First Art Gallery  provides a solution!  I developed this website to offer an online place to showcase your child's artwork and provide a digital archive to treasure these mementos with several options. I had been scanning and photographing my son's art since he started pre-preschool classes and sharing with family online and after speaking with a few other parents, I decided that this was something I could do for others as well. 

My First Art Gallery is also a one-stop-shop for products, materials and inspiration to help your kid's be more creative! We have links for websites where you can download free printable coloring pages or get ideas for great art projects you can do with your kids. Need art supplies? We have those too - all products listed on this site are purchased through Amazon.com so you know you will receive quick shipping, great prices and secure shopping.

I hope that you will check out www.myfirstartgallery.com  - let me know what you think (especially since this is a totally new start-up!) and let your friends know too.
