It is a well-known fact that children have the wildest of imaginations and are very creative by nature. Every parent hopes that their child retains this quality and grows up having fond memories of their childhood.
Visual cues are retained in our memories much longer, and they can be jogged even more easily than other types of cues. This is where art plays an integral role. By placing art in a child’s room, the child will attach the piece to the memories of the room – the smell of clean sheets on the bed, the comfort they feel when they tug their favorite soft toy at night, and the sense of safety.
Here are 5 talented artists you should know if you're looking for artwork to decorate your child’s room.
