The point about working with kindergarten children is valid as
chldren oftern forget to include body parts in their drawings.
If one gets the opportunity to work on a one to one basis it is
possible to encourage each schild to extend the drawing to inclkude
all sorts of detail. When children are given encouragement to draw
they can really astonish themselves with the results they vcvcan
achieve.
I had a child in the hospital last week who was accompanying his
mother while she fed her hospitalized infant. To occupy the child I
gave him paper and pencil and an eraser.and suggeated he draw a
portrait of mum while she was sitting still. He worked on the drawing
for at least 45 minutes then coloured it with a watercolour wash.
It was a very detailed drawing. We mounted the work and the mother
was delighted. The child was about 10 years old. Given the
encouragement children can draw if they have not had the confidence
knocked out of them already.
