I’ve written about arts and crafts many times; it’s a favorite subject of mine, and has always been a focus in every classroom I’ve had (at schools and at home). I’ve always made sure that children have plenty of time for art, as well as all the art supplies they might want: paint, colored pencils, clay, markers, and plenty of paper.
One area that’s always scared me, though, is that of drawing or sketching. It’s not my strong suit, yet it’s something that I want my children to know how to do. That’s why I was so excited when I picked up a copy of Drawing with Children by Mona Brookes.
