I wrote a post last year HERE about my oldest son and his drawing.
He still is.
He is getting even better at it.
A couple of weeks ago, while in the garage puttering around, my son drew a picture on a piece of wood. Knowing the wood was going to be painted, I asked my son to redraw the picture for me again on paper. But, this time he drew in marker and not pencil and it did not have the details, so I kind of forgot about it.
Well, the following weekend said boy was grounded in his room, too many misbehavior's in school.
A little time away from Saturday morning cartoons brought out the creativity in him.
He brought down a whole page of ALIENS.
(hey Sara, did you notice he spells as good as his mother)
These new pictures have depth that none of his other pictures have had before.
He is learning and teaching himself how to draw better.
I can guarantee you, he is not learning this in 4th grade art.
YES, my son is only 9 years old.
I know I can't.
How about you?
Can you draw better than a fourth grader?
He is now working on a project for a school competition about diversity.
At the request of his art teacher.
He has told me that he wants to work for George Lucas and create new Star Wars figures.
I told him that is a good plan.
BUT, he has to pass fourth grade and pay attention in school first.
I am not too worried about him.
I have a feeling he is going to be just fine.
