While school is where most of your kids’ academic learning takes place, home should be a conducive learning environment, too. Here are some of our favorite paint themes inspired by Back-to-School:
Bring geography home! After painting the wall a solid color, use a paint pen to draw the outline of countries (use a projector and a real map for even better accuracy, or if you don’t consider yourself artistic). If it’s in your son or daughter’s room, fill the shapes with colors for a big statement, and think about giving some sticky tack to the room’s resident so he or she can indicate where in the world they’d like to travel.
In color psychology, yellow can be associated with knowledge and creativity, which makes it a great choice for a room where learning will take place. Take inspiration from the traditional school vehicle and brighten up the atmosphere with school bus yellow.
Paint the entire room, one wall, or one furniture item with chalkboard paint to inspire creativity and academia at home. Whether it’s being used to solve math equations or draw castles and dragons, a chalkboard surface is more than just a coat of paint!
