Observational Drawing for Children

My daughter is good at drawing cartoon images.  But, realistic drawing is her recent obsession.  We watched several videos on realistic drawing. It didn’t help her much. I read the article of Dr.Marvin Bartel – ‘Teaching Observation Drawing to Young Children’ recently.  He has written the importance of observation art, how to teach kids to practice drawing effectively, and to help them draw more realistically. 

In observational drawing, children observe the color, shapes, pattern and shadows of the object, and draw what they see.  They notice the details and practice drawing.  This observation skill will surely help them improving concentration and seeing things in different perspectives.

Here are some art works of my little one.
