When I google “sites by kids”, or “sites by young artists”, very little actually comes up. There are indeed, all kinds of blogs for kids, and many are really great. There are communities to showcase work, but there’s nothing like a page created by a young artist to share work and process.
The sites below are three brilliant examples of what young visual artists are doing. Their ages span pre-teen to young adult. The first is Isabella’s beautiful blog.
Isabella has created three separate sections for her work. There’s the poetry section, fine art section, and fashion (her own designs). Isabella regularly posts wonderful works in progress. You must have a look.
http://eleanorleonnebennett.zenfolio.com will bring you to Eleanor Leonne Bennett’s website that is full of her fantastic photography. It is worth every minute you’ll spend on her website, enjoying her work. I urge you to investigate every photograph.
Kellie See, at kelliesee.wordpress.com beautifully chronicles her coursework as an art student studying illustration. On her terrific blog, you’ll find very specific and instructive posts about what she is thinking and working through. This is what Kellie has to say about her blogging experience:
“I think blogging is fantastic. Its such a great opportunity for people to meet others that share similar interests. Since I started blogging I’ve seen some great pieces of work and read the most amazing posts by other bloggers. They are truly an inspiration for me. Blogging has opened up a whole new world to me where I can share my work and get real opinions and comments back. This is so useful and is a great way to find out what others think and to also help you decide which direction to take next. The blogging community have been fabulous and they are so friendly which makes my blogging experience all the better. I really wouldn’t be without it. Kellie ”
Perhaps these extraordinary artists may inspire YOU to create an artist’s blog or website.* Perhaps it is something to thing about for the future.
If you already write a blog or have created your own website to talk about or display your visual art, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to share it here.
