Pkin in Picasso

Pkin loves drawing. If she had her way, she would likely draw for 16 hours a day (with the remaining 8 being filled with eating sushi/noodles and sleeping). She sometimes perseverates on particular drawings (often hairstyles, sometimes eyes, occasionally clothes). And we, of course, encourage and support her in all of this. We take her to a manga drawing class every week (her favorite style), buy her sketchbooks and pencils and whatever else strikes her fancy. We’ve recently also been seeking to push her outside her comfort zone a bit.

We found a private art teacher who lives nearby (he teaches at an elementary school in our school district and his wife is a special ed teacher) who is working with her on using other media and drawing/painting/etc. in other styles. So far, she isn’t complaining about going and is actually producing some interesting pieces. A sampling of these is below:

 

The first creation under Mr. L's guidance. He wanted to see what she could do first and then worked with her on using watercolors for a background.
