A Little Artwork

Ezra is the resident artist of the drawing persuasion. He will turn 4 this summer and he spends about 90% of his time drawing. I'm pretty sure another 8% is spent cutting out some of his drawings, with the last 2% spent on snacking.

Ezra is also a ginormous Toy Story fan, and so he spends roughly half of his drawing time drawing toy story characters. He is an equal fan of the characters and spends time on all of them including the Little Green Men:

No character has too small of a part to be included in Ezra's artwork.

Most recently Jessie has been his fascination and he turned out this little drawing:

It's interesting to me how much Ezra has picked up from just listening in on the directed line drawings I've done with Ender this year. We haven't drawn anything amazing, but we have talked about drawing in pencil first, then going over that work with another medium like marker and then filling in with crayon or paint or something... and you can see all those steps. Ezra is included in those lessons as in "he's there" but he's not usually an active part of the lessons.

We just keep providing the paper and the markers, pencils, and crayons. There's no telling what he might make next.
