One of the subjects that I don’t really cover in our homeschooling journey, is art. Even though I actually supported myself as an artist (air quotes) in Los Angeles (I painted walls and furniture), I cannot draw to save my life. I never progressed much past Kindergarten.
Thankfully my children inherited their artistic flair from their father, who is a talented artist. We’ve come to realize, however, that our 9 year may be some sort of phenom in the world of art.
Fiddledaddy filmed the following over Jensen’s shoulder last night. Keep in mind that the film was sped up only slightly. It took him about 5 minutes to draw the following picture. He did not have any photograph in front of him. This was totally from his fertile imagination.
Perhaps we’ve let him watch one too many dinosaur shows. The images may be permanently burned into his retinas.
I have tried to correct the way he holds his pencil. Really, I have. At this point I think I’m just going to give up because I think he could give me a lesson or three.
He did not add the usual crime scene gore. For that you can be grateful.
My entrepreneurial spirit tells me that somehow, I can make money off this kid. Which will totally go to pay for the future therapy his sisters will undoubtedly need after the exposure to All The Dinosaur Violence.
