CHILDREN AND ART
Scanning old photos to upload on to flickr, I came across drawings I had scanned in that the kids had done before they started school at 5. I remember one rainy day in the October of 2001, when Marcel had just turned 4, I gave him a book of fine art, told him to find a painting he liked and draw it for me to see if I could guess which one it was he had chosen. I was surprised how simple it was to work out given his age! Compare it here to the original and see just how much attention he'd paid to detail. I think the portraits on the bedroom walls are particularly sweet!
