The kids start getting it.
Like, really getting it.
Light bulbs start going off everywhere.
They are eager and finally ready to learn.
All of the practice and training and investment
They are writing.
They are reading.
They growing up.
No longer babies.
Getting ready for the big kid playground.
And every single year,
right about now,
I am amazed by them.
I love how each is similar, but not the same.
These Dr. Seuss portraits were directed drawings.
I draw each part on the white board,
and the class draws theirs.
Kids (and I) are often astounded by
what they can create when they're given
direct instruction in art.
