Follow-the-leader drawing


We had some good studio time yesterday afternoon. Lots of drawing. Maia led the whole thing after an aborted attempt on my part to suggest a certain collage project from the list. I have to remember that while she often still gets excited about a project that I introduce, she is also old enough to know exactly what she wants and to take the lead.

She set out paper and materials for each of us, first for collage, then for drawing. After a while she said we were going to play a game of table hockey (?!). She would draw a line or oval or squiggle and then have me do the same (all on one piece of paper). It was a fun sort of follow-the-leader drawing activity.
