Artists in the Making

Today for Art class, I decided to give the kids the assignment of drawing a specific object.  I told them to pretend that their hands were cameras, and they had to make a copy of the item in front of them.  I have to admit, I was a little surprised by their artistic ability.  All of them, in their own special way, made a very great picture.

Here was the "inspiration" that they were assigned to draw:

Here is what B (7 yrs) came up with:

Here is R's (10 yrs) interpretation:

H's (4 yrs) turned out to be more of an "abstract", but at least she tried...  :o)

Overall, I was very impressed with my little up-and-coming artists.  Now, to find a spot on the fridge to hang them...  :o)
