I’m not artistic. Neither am I creative.
But with children, I think it comes naturally. They draw from what they see and feel. I’ve always encouraged my babies to paint or draw whatever they like.
Usually, I bring them to a certain place and I make them paint whatever they see. I got this idea when we visited Paris some years back. The Parisian kids were sketching the Notre Dame Cathedral while gazing at it.
If you want to encourage the artists in your children but can’t afford expensive art classes like me, I highly recommend buying the Artistic Pursuit books.
You will be amazed at what they can do.
