Sunday, May 17, 2015 | 2 a. m. If you have kids, you have kids’ art: pages of scribbles, paintings, cutouts and coloring book sheets filled to varying degrees. Laminate art to create fun placemats. They typically cost as little as $20, although some fancier models can run upward of $50. Laminate smaller pieces of art, or cutouts from a larger project, and glue to magnets for an easy way to spice up your fridge. Cut your child’s art to the height and width of the candle holder, wrap the outside of the glass in the art, then secure it with clear packing tape. When you light a candle, it will flicker and reflect the colors from the art. Scan your children’s art projects and save digital copies. Every year, make a book of them for each child, including his or her name, age, grade level, school and picture. Have your child pose with his or her latest piece, then snap a picture. Save the photograph and recycle, repurpose or give away the art. Added bonus, if your camera has a date setting, you’ll know exactly when, and at what age, your child created the masterpiece. Art with a purpose. There are dozens of companies that turn kids’ art into amazing creations.

Instead, it is the spaces between the buildings that we inhabit: what urban designers call the public realm. We regularly occupy these spaces, and their quality (or lack of it) has a significant influence on our lives. One of Birmingham's successes in the past 25 years has been the creation of decent public spaces in the city centre. Victoria Square was a traffic island, and the church owned the other spaces. The headlines go to major new civic spaces like Centenary Square, which is currently in the final stage of the competition for its redesign. I shall write about the five shortlisted designs when they go on public display next month. But small local squares, which serve their immediate vicinity, and which have the potential to knit themselves into the fabric of everyday lives, are important in a different way, though less celebrated. It's small, and it's fairly unpretentious (though not entirely so), and it is very welcome as a new local public space, in a district which previously has possessed only St Paul's Square on its periphery. It's taken a long time to happen - the design competition, organised by the.
