Re: [teacherartexchange] kinder's artwork question

Obviously children do go through developmental stages, but I have noticed
that children who have confident artists to observe seem to develop more skills
faster than children who come from a barren or isolated existance. Most
children seem to learn to draw by watching other children (or adults) and if the
child has not had the opportunity for much drawing and has not seen other people
drawing he/she may be working from a whole different set of perceptions. I
had one like that who progressed very quickly in first grade, but often it is a
symptom of delayed development. Autistic kids do some strange drawings too,
so it might be useful to document his progress and be open to making
adjustments in lessons if he has difficulties.
