Today I decided to try something new and incorporate a drawing lesson that I saw on
Art Projects for Kids‘ blog. I cannot draw but the instructions were so easy I thought it couldn’t hurt to try it with my kids. They like art and enjoy the summer art camp that we’ve enrolled them in over the past two summers.
Unfortunately, we had a few perfectionist fits during our first drawing lesson and I learned an important lesson that I had previously followed but didn’t follow this time. Do not draw an example for the kids. Even if you aren’t an artist yourself as they will compare theirs to yours and it leads to frustration and them asking you to help them with their drawing.
