Drawings of everyday life

My daughter drawing, my daughter’s drawings.

My daughter, while she was drawing in a Pancake Restaurant.  She is 8 years old. She especially likes it to draw together with me. She wants us to work together on the same drawing. The concept of authentic authorship doesn’t have any meaning for her, yet. Luckily. On the other side: I prefer the drawings she made entirely by herself. These christmas card are drawn by my daughter, and I filled them in with color.
Made by my daughter
This drawing of the girl is made entirely by my daughter alone.

  3. My niece is about the same age and she also always insists that we both draw on the same page! It was difficult at first for me, but it turned into quite a game! She has done so much to spur my imagination into action!!

    Lovely Christmas cards! She is quite the young artist!

    That is great that you have taught your daughter to enjoy art. I do that with my 5 yr-old grandson too. He always wants to be involved in what I am doing. He did a fingerpainted self-portrait that his parents loved and is on their refrigerator. He wants to work in my books too. I have let him in a couple sketchbooks. I used one of his pages as a tip-in in my journal.

  8. @Rhonda I started drawing with my daughter, using the book Drawing with Children of Mona Brooks, which Danny Gregory recommended in his book. It was usefull. Luckily the book mentioned that around age 8 – 10 children can become perfectionistic. My daughter had real trouble with drawing after an example, and the result not being perfect.
