DIY Art For Your Home

5 Ideas For Making Your Own (Gallery-Worthy) Art

Yesterday, Kate Middleton and Prince William stopped at Los Angeles's Inner-City Arts, a center that offers inner-city children a place to learn, grow, and flex their artistic muscles. I love the idea of creating art with your sweetheart, and it's even better when your art turns out to look good enough to hang in your home. Whether you embark on your artistic journey on your own or with your partner by your side, here are five ideas for creating art that will be display worthy in your home.

  • Take a class from a local school or arts organization. In the Bay Area, The Crucible offers classes ranging from neon to ceramics to woodworking and beyond. Look for an organization in your town or community that offers classes in the discipline you're interested in pursuing. A photography class might guarantee a great landscape portrait for your dining room wall while a wood-turning class could result in a cool bowl to display on your coffee table.
  • Head to a craft store to make low-cost canvases. Get inspired by this large, modern canvas that LAKR made with tape, paint, and a stretched canvas.
  • Turn your photographs into art. Try using a matted frame or blowing your canvas up into a larger piece to create a major impact with photography. Or, have your photo printed on a canvas, like Seefree did.
  • Memorialize nature finds or flowers from your garden with pressed flora art.
  • Create a vintage bus roll art piece that memorializes special places you've visited in your life. See how Yoo Rang hung it in her home for inspiration.
