Learning to Draw

My Granddaughter, Katy who is 5 1/2 years old, has been coloring since she
was about 12 months old.  Grandma, me, gave her crayons at a very early
age.  I am an artist and she always watched me drawing and painting and of
course she wanted to do it too .Now that she is getting older she wants to learn
more.  This week she asked me to teach her to draw a face.  So we both
got out our pencils and paper and we started with an oval. The pictures here are
our first attempt  on drawing a face.  I think she is doing pretty
well for the first time . I found this other drawing on my desk after she went
home, looks like she was practicing her shading.. I am very pleased that her
crayons, Crayola of course, and art set are her favorite toys. She got a big
beautiful art set for Christmas from her great grandmother, which of course was
her favorite  gift of the year ! She will play with art supplies over any
video game and what a great thing when a child learns to use their imagination 
which is a rare things in today's world. When my catalog arrives , we
both can't wait to sit and read it together. For those of you who don't know, it is an art supply house that has just about anything  you
could ever want in art supplies, our wish catalog ! Hope you all enjoy the
unspoiled art of a child as Katy progresses on her journey. - Online Art Supplies
