Children's art

How do you purge, organize and contain children's art?

First, treat the process like it's a ceremony. You can set up a judges table, create yes and no paddles, give them a judge badge.  This drives home that you are choosing the very best!  Whatever makes the process seem positive and like more fun, do it.

File flat art in a portfolio.  At the end of each semester, tell your child it's time to pick the best of the best. Pick one piece to frame and 3 or 4 to keep for posterity.  Photograph the rest and discard it.

For 3D art let them linger for a while, until the thrill has worn off.  Then discuss how some art is for display and some art is a "learning experience".
