If you are a new parent wanting to take your daughter on the hunt for her very first scrapbook, one of the first things you will want to do is create a girl’s portfolio. The daughter’s portfolio should be a fun and inspiring journey into her creative world. It is important that she has something to show her friends and family that showcases her talents. Let’s discuss some ideas of what your daughter should have on her portfolio to ensure it is both creative and interesting.
You want her portfolio to be visually appealing so I recommend that it is in colors that she likes.
Try to have her make a portfolio that is not only appealing to her but also fun to look through. Your daughter can even add journaling to her portfolio for even more detail. Let her choose the colors, style, and font that suits her best.
I would also suggest that she keep it simple. There is no need to go crazy with embellishments or other designs. Go with a few key colors with a few nice pictures. Use a similar background, but keep it fun. Let her take credit for coming up with the idea. That way she gets credit as the artist.
Another tip I would give is to keep it simple
Girls love to draw and if you give them a simple sketch pad and pencil they are more than happy to start creating their own little creative masterpiece. This is a chance for her to express herself creatively. This is a great way to help her with her self-confidence.
Make sure it is a digital format. This means it can be easily shared online so her friends and family can see her work anywhere they have internet access. If her portfolio is on her phone, she can send it to her friends for approval. If her friends are older, they can help her better with the designs. Kids love to see their own work and sometimes they are too excited to be satisfied with “what else” they can do.
Show her what she is capable of as well. You might not think about this, but a girl’s portfolio should show some of your talents. Sometimes when girls come to an event and are introduced to someone new, they are impressed by your artwork because they feel that they can learn from you. Give her a few examples of how you can express yourself creatively and also show her what kind of animals you like best.
Finally, make sure that she is shown exactly how to do something neat and professional. There is nothing worse than seeing a girl’s portfolio only to find that it is just a bunch of sloppy art. So make sure that she is shown how to do a professional sketch, but make it simple. Let her do a free-hand version and show her how to get it just right.
Hopefully, you have found these tips useful
. If you put these into practice with your girl’s portfolio you will find that it becomes easier to create a better and more professional art portfolio for your young talented girls. You will be able to show potential buyers how much fun you have while making an investment in their future and happiness. You will find that the confidence that comes along with having a great girl’s portfolio is one of the best selling points of all. Your kids’ careers will never be the same!
