She’s Artsy

ducks etc

Grace has always enjoyed drawing, and in recent weeks has been exploring something new: she’s been doing the “lessons” in Sam’s Draw Write Now book, and yesterday she started adding a storytelling element.

In this image, she first drew the two ducks, then added water and told me they were swimming. She then added the third duck on shore, the cat and dog, the rabbit, and the flying birds (including a nest of baby birds!).

I am particularly pleased because she came up with all of this on her own. From the idea to use the book to the addition of elements not in the book, it’s all Grace.
