I love kid art!
This picture was created by one of my 5-year old Kindergarteners. FIVE YEARS OLD!!!! They were learning about foreground and background and how things in the foreground are bigger and things get smaller when they get far away. You'd be surprised at how hard this concept is for them to grasp, but I thought that the little girl that made this did a pretty good job. To clear any possible confusion, she has drawn a picture of a man walking down the street in the process of taking off his hat. The buildings in the background were drawn smaller, proving that she understood the concept- Now we just need to work on the fact that buildings sit on the street and don't float in the air. I love the extremely confident line quality that you get in drawings done by children that are so young, and I'm sure this will be the first of many pictures I'll share with you.
