Sandra - the little ones do love architecture, don't they! I remember a
little summer class I once had of 6 & 7 year olds who LOVED drawing
buildings. They wanted to draw them from photographs, and so we drew "great
buildings in history" - their choice - upside down like in Betty Edward's
book, and the results were so great. One little girl worked so hard she fell
asleep as soon as she was finished. One little boy didn't like the outsides
of buildings but could draw the inside of his favorite restaurants from
memory - table settings and wall sconces included.
