One of the things I love most about early childhood art is watching the process. Watching the concentration, those little gears turning, and those creative sparks flying is just priceless. What else have I learned? Creativity takes practice. Lots and lots of practice. It truly is a process, no matter how old you are. I've been rediscovering the importance of practice my own creative path, but I see it reflected in these images.
And because I'm a proud momma, I can't help but share one of Ethan's recent drawings. It's probably the third example of something representational that I've witness him draw accurately, and it's by far the strongest.
Phew! Creating great art is hard!

Doesn't get much better than that!
