Children's Art Framing Ideas

Here Are Some Ways to Display Wonderful Kid Art!


Of COURSE your child's artwork is special… even if it is in a pile, we know you have an art wall planned! Or maybe you have been sticking your child's art on the fridge or taped to a wall, and now there's no more room for the new stuff.  Argh! What to do?

To display your child's art shows recognition that your budding artist and his/her creations are valued. What better way to boost their self-esteem!

So, let's celebrate the art pieces your youngster creates and showcase them! Here are some great ideas you can implement that will elevate your little sunshine's work from the pile to a place of honor. But don't let these be the end-all. Maybe they will inspire a little creativity in you too!


FRAMES WITH CORK BACKING

You can replace the backing with cork board, which comes in a roll and is cut to size. Just pin the art to the framed cork.

JUST THE FRAMES

Use one or more frames and remove the backing and the glass. Fasten the frame to the wall. Simply tape or pin the art piece to the wall behind the frame. Switch out the art whenever you want.

THE "ARTSLINE"

 Of course, a very simple way to display art is from a line of twine, ribbon, or even wire strung horizontally on a wall, just like a clothesline.  Use clips or decorative clothespins to attach the pieces to the wire. Easy to switch out.

PROP FRAMED ART ON LEDGES

Either install or use floating ledges you already have. Place the framed artwork on the ledges in any configuration you want. You can even overlap some of them for artistic flare - and it saves room!

SPECIAL FRAME GROUPINGS

 A very fun way to display kid's art is to have several different frames all matching in color and/or having the same shape or a mixture of different ones. Group them on a wall. This is especially fun in a child's room over the bed or desk, or an area reserved for this art. 

PRESERVE WITH A POSTER

What if you have a LOT of art, and they are all special, but now you need to make room for more? Consider having many pieces all preserved in a poster. There are companies who will do this for you. You provide the digital photos and they will reproduce all of them on a poster. You can have several pieces displayed at one time (such as 10 of 12, each reduced in size.) The result is a quality poster showcasing the pieces. Finish it off with a frame and mat if you wish. Voila!

MIX IT IN!

Don’t have a space just for your child's art? There is nothing wrong (and maybe a lot right) with hanging a framed original piece from your child among other framed works you already have hanging.

Basic Picture Framing Terms & Tips

Learn How to Talk to your Framer to Get Exactly What you Want!

Do you have something you’ve been wanting to frame, but when it comes to deciding on the treatment for your piece you feel lost? We made a quick start guide on basic framing terms to simplify the process and bring you closer to having the walls of your dreams!

The purpose of framing is both to hang up your masterpiece in a style that compliments the art and surrounding decor, and to properly store and preserve the piece from the elements, keeping it fresh and safe.

It is best to decide on a frame in person with your framer where you can hold up a sample corner to your piece to see if it will compliment it, but read below ahead of time to get an idea of what you might want to request!

I. The Molding/The Frame:

“Molding” is what we call the material of the frame. It is usually wood, metal, or plastic.

The “rabbit“ groove of the molding for glass

Frames for glass. These frames have a lip or what we call “rabbit”. It’s a small shelf groove to hold the glass from popping out the front of the frame.

 
Here is a 5” x 7” frame

Floater Frames: This frame is used without glass as it doesn’t have a lip to hold glass in but instead has an open front where your art is held in place but has the appearance that it is not touching anything and is “floating” in place. This is commonly used for framing a stretched canvas or art on wood.

Shadow Box:  This frame has deep sides so objects can be framed. Everything from dresses, to kitchen utensils to instruments to jerseys can go in a shadowbox.  Mat boards usually line the interior of the box and your piece is mounted inside.

II. The Mat:

Single mat: Single mats add extra decoration to your art and are available in virtually every color. A popular design trend when framing small art is adding a much larger mat. This creates a lot more attention on your wall and draws the viewer in to the finer detail.

Double mat:
using a second layer of mat board underneath the first, you can compliment a chosen color within the piece, or match your decor scheme.

Float Mount:  Artwork is attached to the top of the mat so you can see the edges of the artwork. This can be especially nice for watercolors, or a print on deckled paper where you can see the nice textured edge of the page.

No Mat: You can also skip adding a mat altogether if you are framing a standard poster, or your print already has a white border around it.

III. The Glass:

Different glass features are available to best preserve and present your piece.

Regular: Normal Glass to protect the artwork or poster from dirt and dust.

UV: Used for when you plan to hang your piece where there might be sunlight to protect and slow down the photo or artwork from fading. note: even with UV, direct sunlight for a long period of time is not recommended as over time the sun will win.

Non-Glare. This glass has a matte finish that disperses reflections but allows your piece to be seen clearly, such as when there is bright overhead light reflecting and thus distracting from being able to look at the image.

Here a “Museum glass” is used, the most expensive non-glare glass treatment you can get. @swoszowski

It is the closest thing you can get to looking like there is no glass at all though your piece is being preserved.

Acrylic/Plexi glass. More expensive than regular glass. This is used primarily for pieces that are being shipped, to help prevent breakage or damage of artwork, and also for hanging oversized pieces where the weight is a consideration since acrylic is lighter than regular glass.

The above glass treatments are available in either glass or plexiglass. Example, non-glare is available in either glass or plexiglass.

Vintage Style Picture Framing Featuring Charleston Artist, Whitney Stoddard 

 

Whitney Stoddard is an artist residing in Charleston, South Carolina. She is currently featuring her Tea Stained Collection, a series of female silhouettes on tea-stained watercolor paper she makes by hand for each piece.

As part of the new team of artists and designers for the Vault on King, (a luxury retail art space and gallery in Charleston) she is gaining a wider audience of admirers and collectors.

Whitney came across our ornate vintage and handmade picture frames on our Etsy shop (link) and has since created a beautiful collection of her pieces in our best vintage frames!


To create her figures and portraits, she uses a combination of charcoal sketch, acrylic paint, and India ink on tea stained paper which she creates herself by hand for each piece using leaves from the Charleston Tea Plantation, located in Wadmalow Island, SC.

Each of Whitney's pieces are elegantly simple and unique. "I love to evoke a sense of emotion from each of my ladies, but never want them to feel overworked. Each new piece brings life to a unique personality and character. It's only through my painting that I'm able to uncover each lady's story."

What's Your Gallery Wall Style?

What's Your Gallery Wall Style?

The many shapes of a gallery wall - Find your style!

 

Here we will focus on the very first step of creating a gallery wall, deciding on its personality and shape. Some are more flexible and grow freely in time, and some take more planning and precise measuring. Which one suits your personality the most? Are you someone that keeps acquiring new art? Or do you have a collection that goes together nicely as a finished set. Decide on your shape and theme. What's most like your style?

 

The Circular Gallery Wall

Mix art with objects. One of two brass decorations are chosen as the center focal point, with its pair off to the side and then art circles around the two.

 

The Collection

Custom Picture Framing Los Angeles Gallery Wall Design

A collection of art is hung on a straight line of nails. Since the hook placement varies from their sizing, the frames are slightly out of line but have a consistency.  

 

The Asymmetrical Gallery

Asymmetrical Gallery Wall Eclectic Home Design

On this wall, various sets are placed across from each other, and a few small pieces and objects are mixed in to create a unique balance.

 

Find the theme that fits your style of the pieces you have and the way you collect to be able to decide what space and arrangement will be best.

How to frame large format photography prints

Featuring custom seasonal art by Pascal Shirley


In January, California is a place where you can visit the snow and surf in the same day. Pascal Shirley is a California based photographer residing in Los Angeles who captures the varying landscapes of Los Angeles and beyond. He does his own printing as well as offers classes on how to shoot and print your own work. He also offers a unique Art on Loan framed print feature, where he creates rotating seasonal art for a single client to cycle through as the year moves on, even though the seasons may not.

For Pascal's pieces we went with two frames about the same size that were strong enough and with a big enough width and depth to hold the large Plexi Glass size. Our Matte White #2611 and Matte Black #79371 which are each approximately 1.5" wide and 1 1/4" deep.

Pascal's large format prints are framed with spacers so the image is set back from the plexi glass. (Plexi Glass, also known as Acrylic Glass, is safer because it is shatter proof.)

We love framing photography jobs and especially strikingly large format pieces, and the impact they have when they are framed up on a wall. Photography prints are most commonly done up in a simple matte frame, usually white or black, allowing the shot to jump out at you in all its detail.

       Today we’d like to introduce you to Lanna Borom.   Lanna, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?   1979: Chuck Borom, the owner and president, started by making frames in his own garage. He then decided to travel the world selling framed art. Starting with the letter A, the adventure began in Alaska, onto Australia, then Africa.  Cut to 1989: Never made it to B… instead Chuck decided to create Belle Arte. He settled down by opening his own factory in Los Angeles and by getting married to me.  Together we created a business that we love, providing quality framing services to local artists, designers, and neighbors of Los Angeles.  We love to work with people who make art and people who love art!

           Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?   Being in the art and framing business has definitely had its challenges. Originally, we were wholesalers only of framed art and mirrors. Then, after 2008, when the housing market crashed, no one wanted to buy art for their foreclosures.  That’s when we really opened our doors to our local photographers and artists, and to anyone who needed to frame art they had for a show, or individual pieces for their home. It was a win/win for everyone! We were able to offer better pricing as we are actually a factory and not a retail storefront.  By inviting everyone in, we could keep our employees busy and didn’t have to downsize. Also, we got to meet the most incredible artists and friends.  Thus, we are still in business today and can still offer volume pricing to designers for their projects as well as great service for everyone!      Belle Arte – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?   Our business concept is to be a go-to framing and mirror source for local artists and designers of Los Angeles and beyond. All of our prices are wholesale for any project, budget or high-end.  We’ve been in business for 30 years working with the design and hospitality industry, from local artist and galleries to national designers. With experience in doing rush jobs for galleries and art shows, we understand deadlines and we are willing to work with the unique demands of a project.  We understand that framing can be intimidating so we make it an enjoyable and creative experience.

BOOST YOUR BOTTOM LINE WITH QUALITY ART IN THE WORKPLACE - Part Two: The Employee

Part two: The Employee

Art benefits employees too! Art in the workplace has definite benefits for employees as well. Studies have shown that art surrounding a company’s employees can definitely influence their mindset. Art can be inspiring, and an inspired employee can generate more new ideas, leading to new promotional campaigns.  New, vibrant and relevant campaigns can lead to more company growth.
For example, an area with refreshments such as coffee and tea or a lunchroom could be enhanced with art depicting delectable foods and beverages. Meeting rooms could have more business-oriented art in those spaces to help with setting the pace and atmosphere.

Art benefits employees too! Art in the workplace has definite benefits for employees as well. Studies have shown that art surrounding a company’s employees can definitely influence their mindset. Art can be inspiring, and an inspired employee can generate more new ideas, leading to new promotional campaigns.  New, vibrant and relevant campaigns can lead to more company growth.

Just looking at a work of art can unlock a person’s creativeness. Employees who are feeling energized and creative will emanate these qualities to coworkers and customers alike. It can make the difference between a lively, productive workforce and one that is slogging through the day with an eye on the clock.

There’s no doubt that art can have a direct effect on the atmosphere in the workplace.  Think of a painting of a couple holding hands by candlelight, or a photo of a beautiful woman in a silk robe looking out of a lace curtained window with a cup of tea in her hands. These images can enhance a certain restaurant’s desire to appeal to those customers who want the experience of fine dining where the lighting is low and romantic. On the other hand, a funeral parlor would probably want peaceful, calming, or religious art to help customers who are experiencing grief.

Another aspect of art in the workplace is that it can function to define spaces. Used as focal points in spaces where employees and/or clients gather, it can act as a clue as to what should be happening there. For example, an area with refreshments such as coffee and tea or a lunchroom could be enhanced with art depicting delectable foods and beverages. Meeting rooms could have more business-oriented art in those spaces to help with setting the pace and atmosphere. 

Keep in mind that if you are getting ready to build or renovate office space, at least plan for the possible placing of art in the future, even if you have no idea what form it will take right now. You can avoid costly mistakes later by thinking with the lighting being installed or the bracing that might be needed for heavy art works down the road.

Every company wants happy, on-purpose employees and clients who love being in their space. Do all of them a favor by boosting their morale and firing up their creativeness. Everyone wins with well-chosen, well-placed quality art in the office.

Boost Your Bottom Line with Quality Art in the Workplace

part one: the customer

Have you ever found yourself in a place of business where the space was dingy, the furniture shabby, and the “art” displayed was, well, horrible? Art on your office walls is more than mere decoration. It can actually accomplish a worthwhile purpose in your workplace. 

BOOST YOUR BOTTOM LINE WITH QUALITY ART IN  THE WORKPLACE

Let’s talk first about customers and clients who come to your office. The right art can do major lifting when it comes to your branding. Your brand is ­­­­­­­expressed through many different channels, including the atmosphere in your office, the name of your product, packaging, and even how your employees dress. Branding can also be bolstered through the art displayed in the workplace.

For example, if your company’s product promises clients peace of mind, then the art you display should convey the same throughout. If, on the other hand, your product is the latest and greatest technology, then your displayed art should reflect innovation, speed, and a sense of the future.


   "Art can reflect your company’s values, its reason for existing in the first place."
 

Perhaps your company provides health foods, and art that shows vibrant, healthy people the world over eating and smiling furthers that idea. A law office that specializes in family law could have art that expresses happy families, showing clients the firm’s ultimate purpose.

The right art in your office gives visual cues concerning the culture of your company. For example, if yours is an international business, art that depicts different ethnicities and customs could spark a greater global awareness in your customers.

Or maybe your company is headquartered in a city with well-known landmarks. Displaying art that features these landmarks reminds your clients and visitors of the status of your location. (Think Golden Gate Bridge, the Arch in St. Louis, or Times Square in New York City.)

BOOST YOUR BOTTOM LINE WITH QUALITY ART IN  THE WORKPLACE, Bright Colors Stimulate.

Don’t forget the impact of color as well. Bright colors stimulate, and darker, pastel or muted colors are calming. You may want to stimulate appetites by combining yellow and red colors. Art using colors that compliment the furniture throughout the office helps create a unifying effect.

Art can and does function on an emotional level too. A hospital that displays quality art of restful scenes or even abstracts with soothing colors and shapes would have a calming effect on patients and visitors.

Likewise, a business that thrives on fast, innovative ideas and an energetic workforce would bolster that notion using art that furnishes the feeling of fast moving objects and energies, or abstracts that impact with sharp lines and dynamic movement.

Quality art displayed in the workplace is a subtle yet definitive statement about the quality of your company. Let quality art in the workplace be a subtle signal to your clients and customers that yours is a quality company with an excellent product.
