The Drawing Room

Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.  Pablo Picasso

Children love to draw.  During our art unit we showed the children how to draw animals.  It's drawing but it is also listening and following teacher directions!

Ed Emberley's website http://www.edemberley.com/pages/main.aspx  is a great start for young children. If you search 'Ed Emberley' and look under 'images' you can also get some ideas. Many websites I searched were too old for preschool which is why I like the Ed Emberley and Usborne books for our room.  Simple shapes and instructions create an animal.

Here are a few book ideas...

 Get out the crayons, the markers, colored pencils and paper and spend some time drawing with your child!
