drawing development

I just had parent conferences at the elementary school. One parent was
concerned that her daughter who is now in the 3rd grade does not draw as much
as she used to. Drawing used to consume her since she was very young. She
does however do children's crafts in her free time, lace braiding, etc. I
think this is a case of child drawing development changing naturally or that
the child is busy with other homework, interests, etc. I know the
developmental stages and that some children become intimidated at early
adolescence with their percieved quality of work, but I was a little curious
about a third grader. A frightening experience happened to this child several
months ago, and the parent was concerned that this might have affected the
child and is showing up in her drawing behavior. I think, however, that this
is natural behavior. Any insights?
