Channeling Inner Picasso: DIY Painted Wall Art 

We have yet to see a home that wouldn’t benefit from epic wall art! When we were teenagers we were hanging up posters of our favorite bands all over our bedroom and now as adults we’re hanging up our favorite art pieces all over the home! Because paintings are known to cost a lot of money and we know that you’re always up for a good creative project, we figured we could challenge you to create your own wall art! Channel your inner Picasso and get inspired with these DIY painted wall art ideas!  

1. Dragged Painting 


You have a bit of an advantage if you are into modern art, because there are often no rules as to how it’s supposed to look like. Mr. Kate shares a tutorial for a so-called dragged painting which is a really cool technique to make your own dark and mystical modern painting!
