Maybe TWO basements worth! I definitely know what that’s like. My mom has been an artist for her entire life, and has been an art teacher for decades. My grandfather was a prolific artist and his art was featured on a super popular TV show! The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. So growing up with an artist grandfather, an artist and art teacher mother, and from a family of five kids gave me a lot of insight into the growing artwork pile. I honestly don’t know what my parents did with all of it. This was even before digital photography so it’s not like they could have even taken photos of it. I guess most of it’s gone with basement cleanups, time, the elements, and moving houses.
Artkive is the BEST Way to Save Children’s Artwork
How does it work?
So, first, you should know that it’s the best way we’ve found to capture, organize, and celebrate our children’s creativity. And it solves the problem for parents of what to do with all of that art, year after year, season after season. It’s not just the memory keeping, but it’s the clutter. And vice versa. So Artkive provides you with a prepaid box. You fill it with your kids’ art. Then they professionally photograph each piece – even the ones with mixed media and 3D dimensions and intense details – and they turn it all into an incredible keepsake hardcover book. Or you can get a custom-framed mosaic print, which is SUCH a cool way to see all of the art in one print. (*You can opt into getting your child’s artwork returned afterwards, if you’d like!)
Your child can be a published author!
You can think of Artkive as your child’s first publisher. So far, they have helped hundreds of families preserve and celebrate their kids’ art in an organized fashion. We have a LOT to go through, with two kids who have already had many years in grade school. Scarlet seems to have done the most art in first grade, so we decided to organize her art by grade, and then have a series of books coming out. She had such meaningful art, and they totally nailed the designs and details. And you never have to order your book without first seeing a proof of what it will look like. The whole process is completely professional and also easy to follow.
When you receive your Artkive Book:
This is one of the best experiences! We unpacked it together, and took a good long look at every single page. So many memories, preserved in a gorgeous book. And it’s such fun to make different books of the years, and you can really see the growth in your child!
