I am trying to teach T to draw. She likes scribbling and coloring and doodling, so I thought why not?
Here’s how Drawing Lesson 101 began:
First show basic shapes.
draw simple object using basic shapes
make 3D object
step 4 :
ask child to draw favorite doodle object. Cheer them.
draw what preschooler demands- usually well beyond our artistic capabilities. Try anyway. Get cheered (for the first few objects at least)
step 1000 or thirty minutes later or when kid gets bored:
start new activity with new hope. Repeat from step1.

(Update: description of the pictures:
We started with the house and then truck… The potato-esque structure then followed-supposedly, a clock- the sole art by T, before she started demanding that I draw since it was ‘Mommy’s turn’. Who knew Aurora has to have a tiara and Ariel does not wear gloves with her gown… Sigh!)
