The Boy's Eye For Art Again

Forgive me for being a bit redundant, but this boy has a keen sense of color and art! I bought him a new box of 64 crayons and the moment he got home he got them out and began to categorize them by color and mark little swatches on this paper to find out which blue was the darkest or the lightest, etc. When I saw what he was doing, I began to write the (sometimes a little crazy) names of the colors beside the swatches. Now he has them all almost memorized. And in a brilliant (for a 4yo) way, he can identify the colors by the first letter. If he sees a dark green that starts with "E" he knows it must be Eco Green. Wow. He uses his crayons like he's working with the finest paints available. I love to watch him color.
I am so thankful for the moments God reminds me to slow down and color with him.

  10. That is so cool! I should have my students do that for the first art lesson in a few weeks. They may be Gr. 6/7 but I really do like the idea. :)

  11. What always amazes me is when a child can sit for so long and create a work of art with such detail. Usually they have such short attention spans, but once in a while they surprise us! Extraordinary work of art!
    Thanks, Becky Jane
