Calvin & Hobbes Wall Art for a Fun Kid’s Room!

As you know, ItsyBitsy is a Hobby and Craft Supplies MEGASTORE so if your hobby extends to art and painting, then this is your definitive destination for all things arty! So when I wanted some wall art for my kids’ room, I figured I’d best do it myself and with ItsyBitsy around, it was easy peasy!

The MontMart range at ItsyBitsy is extraordinary! You’ve got literally EVERYTHING – from brush sets, to paints, to mediums, to canvases to easels. I decided to go with acrylic paints on a canvas background so everything you see here is painted as such.

I know what you’re thinking – ‘wow, Sunehra’s an artist’ – not quite! My mother taught me this fantastic way to draw perfect pictures. It’s actually the approach followed in many kids activity books to help them draw but I never did it as a kid and I am seeing it’s benefits only now.

  1. First, I find a picture online that suits my project. 
  2. I print it out on a piece of paper.
  3. With a pencil and ruler, I create a grid of 12 squares on this printout encompassing the entire picture. 
  4. Then I create a similar grid of 12 squares on my canvas with a pencil.
  5. I then attempt to copy the picture by using the grid as a guide.
  6. Once I’m done, I erase the grid lines from the canvas which is not easy so make sure the grid lines are very lightly drawn. 

Once I was done, I went to my local frame shop and got it framed in different colours. They had a great kids range, brightly coloured frames – perfect for my creations. 
What do you think of my wall art? Have you tried anything for your home? Would love to see. Leave a comment with a link and I’ll be sure to pop by!
