The Budding Artist


My nine year old brought this home from art class last night. His own choice of subject, still life, charcoal on paper. I was most impressed.

Beautiful! Please tell your son he has fans on the Internet, and encourage him to keep drawing. :-)

Wow!
My nine-year old is definitely not an artist, he is a language person. I am amazed at how you can see their natural inclinations at a young age, if we allow them the space to develop them.

I love it when kids learn about shading- a whole new world opens up for them.

You should tell him back in the old days we only had 2-D

You have every right to be proud of that child. That is an amazing piece of work for a 9-year-old.
