Learning From His Big Sister

Gabby (6 years old) decided to teach Connor (2 years old) how to draw some simple drawings.

First, she showed him how to draw a flower.

Here's Gabby's flower:

Here's Connor's attempt to draw a flower:

Then, she showed him how to draw a dinosaur.

Here's Gabby's dinosaur:

Here's Connor's attempt to draw the same dinosaur:

The really cute thing about this "lesson" is that, when Gabby was showing it all to me, she was pointing out which parts of Connor's flower picture were the leaves, stem and petals and which parts of his dinosaur picture were the teeth, spikes and tail. Can you see those things in his drawings?

  1. It is cool that she could see those details. Probably because she saw the art during creation. As always, and especially so with children's art, the process is more important than the product!

    Have you read the children's art books by MaryAnn F. Kohl?
