If it is worth spending the time to paint something it is worth a few moments to create something to frame it.
This is more than often overlooked; it is a small thing that can highlight the mood by adding impact and spice to any artwork. Plus it does look great.
You can paint a boarded frame before or after you have finished your painting. But another popular idea for the classroom is to make a boarded frame on a larger piece of paper separately and add it to the completed painting later. This is what we have done here.
|Frame your artwork with another larger sheet of paper.|
Tips:Paste sheets of colour paper on a larger board like we did with the clown painting.
Use another sheet of paper to cover and protect your painting while you paint a frame.
|Frames can be simple yet very effective|
