Life Drawing for Children By Paula Briggs
I wanted to give children (ages 6 to 10) the opportunity to draw figures from life, and to create a session which was active and fun. Children were invited to bring in props which would inform poses – taking it in turns to model and draw. The children were full of energy and enthusiasm and responded well to their changing roles. In particular the children impressed me most with their attitude to the resulting drawings – we avoided their stereotypical thoughts as to what a drawing of a person “should be” and instead I think the children really did enjoy making and seeing drawings which tried to capture the spirit of the pose.
