In one of Shawn's classes he is examining art for school aged children. As with much of his learning, he frequently engages the kids in little projects that apply some of the concepts he's been studying in class.
As of late, he and Julia have been playing around with observational drawing. Sometimes they look at pictures from the Internet (like flowers and insects), other times they draw from (pun intended!) things they see in their environment.
I was especially blown away with Julia's drawing of one of Dylan's toy planes...

And she nailed the colours, too.
I love seeing the world through my children's eyes.
