My Kid’s Art

I wonder what kind of artwork my little preschooler will bring home for me today…

Coloring outside the lines is a fine art. – Kim Nance

When you look at my kitchen, you will immediately know that I have a little artist. Her numerous works of art are hung and displayed – err alright, more like stuck on the fridge and cupboard doors with Blu Tack – but still, they are there. Because they are not just my little girl’s pride and joy – they are also mine.

I don’t know what it is, they are not perfect pictures but perhaps the imperfection is what makes them special. Plus the fact that these are created by a four year old. My four year old. It gives me an insight on what she thinks about and what’s important to her. It’s a beautiful story and it is amazing to see.

Once they start drawing, you can see how quickly they learn and develop fine motor skills. It was not so long ago when all she did with a pen was make messy marks on things. Then some unidentified scribbles. Before you know it they start nursery school and coming home with these works of art. Lines are straighter, shapes are more defined and colors mostly stay inside the lines.

Just recently, she amazed me at how well she can follow instructions to draw a specific object – a crab. When I was working on the illustrations for my book, she asked if she could draw it too. So I talked her through it and I have to say I was very impressed and she was so proud.

Here’s the video if you would like to see it.

  1. The artwork/ scribbles/ cardboard stuff just never ends once they start nursery… but although it is often rubbish (truth be told) it is still sooooo precious, isn’t it, because it’s THEIR hand at something different and it gets us into their wild imaginations. The cards, however, are priceless – I’ve kept all the Valentine’s and Mother’s Day cards my son has made me at nursery/ pre-school.
