Want to be an artist but not sure how? Check out these pieces of DIY artwork and painting tutorials that will have you feeling artistic in no time!
When I moved into my first house I was obsessed with the idea of “real” art hanging on my walls. Actual paintings on canvases seemed like the next logical step towards a more grown up design aesthetic. Gone were the posters hung in frames and I spent a lot of time on online looking for paintings I could afford. But GOOD paintings cost GOOD money. And that was something I just didn’t have.
That marked the first time I started making my own artwork to hang on my own walls. Having always been crafty and having taken a LOT of art classes in college studying graphic design I thought it would be easy. But sometimes inspiration can be hard to find. And sometimes your confidence in your art skills just isn’t there.
Back then I didn’t have a blog and I hadn’t even heard of such a thing so I struggled. But these days inspiration is available at the click of a button. How nifty is that? And so today I’m sharing 25 of my very favorite DIY art tutorials I found online this week.
Please be kind and click through to the original maker’s websites to pin images. It’s the best possible way to thank them for all of their hard work!
