I love children's drawings. I love observing them being drawn, I love watching the process as a child thinks up new ideas and ways of expressing them, I love hearing their thoughts and stories afterwards as they share their drawings with me.
Enkhmaa drew a wonderful picture of her family:
And this picture by Solongoo:
"It's a beautiful bird" she told me. I agreed, even though I had wrongly assumed in my mind that she had drawn a very interesting lady.
I am reminded not to make assumptions about children's artwork, but to encourage them to talk about their thoughts and ideas, using their own words, and not making any judgements about it- but taking their word for it. After all, they are the artists! And their imagination is not as limited as mine sometimes is J
