Learning to draw

Lately, Nadia has been showing a lot of interest in drawing. She showed me this drawing last night of a her home. It shows a house, a tree, a pet dragon, Ozzie and her playing. How lovely!

We started by drawing a Monkey swinging from the vines. I walked Nadia through this step by step.

So I walked her through those step by step…

I am really impressed at how this turned out. I learned to draw and helped Nadia learn too…how awesome 🙂


Have a great weekend!
