The Thinking Behind the Drawing
My mom taught me a saying:
“What can you tell me about this?”
I use it all the time. It’s great because it asks a child what they are drawing without saying “What is that?” It also doesn’t make you guess. “Nice….flower?”
And I write it down on the work.
Ero’s art is fairly simple in concept at age 2, mostly drawing people he knows. Lou’s on the other hand are increasing in creativity.
I won’t go into the 7 pages she drew and then dictated to me, but here’s a glimpse.
“A sun with a smiley face. At night time it turns into a gas. In morning it pops open.”
“Then the volcano comes and it’s all his sisters.”
“And this is the size of when he was born.” – She’s still talking about the sun.
This blows my freaking mind. How do you get a kid to fit into society yet retain this creativity? I am not sure, but I am going try.
