Lily's Drawing Skills

Lily's Little Learners is all about Learning with Lily and so I just simply can't not post about her progress with her drawings.

Lily has always loved drawing and colouring. I got her crayons at one year old and even then she did a great job doing some lovely scribbles onto paper. 


Lately Lily's drawing skills have impressed me. We sat down and I got her to copy some of the patterns and shapes. I did a circle and she did a really good copy of one. Then a line from one end of the paper to the other...Easy! So I tried a zig zag to the end of the paper and to my surprise she did a great job. She even nearly managed to copy a heart I drew.

It was only a few weeks ago when I noticed really how good her drawing was getting when she started to draw what she see's as people. 


As she is drawing she would tell me what she was doing. She would draw a circle and say face. She would then add 2 arms to the side and 2 legs at the bottom, then add eyes, smile, nose and even hair. So all that was missing is the body. She then would tell me who they were. In the examples below you can see Nan and Grandad. 

What do you think to Lily's attempts?

  1. Nice for you to see and share how Lily and her drawings etc are developing. Lovely that you are having a good conversation with her, as she shares what she is learning through experience. Seems that her Grandparents are loved and important to her. Maybe starting a portfolio of her drawings could be interesting to look back on in future years, especially if you add the conversations that went along with them. Memories are so important .

  7. I'm in favour of anything that brings education into playing, and "playing" whilst actually learning to draw is a good example!
