How many times have you heard your little child saying that? Can you think what was your response to it?
You are right,! “Tell me about your drawing,” or “What do you like about your drawing?”, are two of the correct answers. And this is because by these open-ended responses you let the child evaluate his own creativity while initiating conversation about the work at hand.
And always have on your mind that guessing what is that sketching on the top of the blue and red colors supposed to be, doesn’t work.
<<By not assuming anything about the child’s work of art, the door to self-evaluation and communication opens>>, says Mary Ann Kohl who is an author of numerous award-winning art idea books for children.
