We have noticed the children drawing different friends in the Rainey room and set up an opportunity to draw portraits today. The children worked two at a time and drew the person sitting at the table with them. They began by noticing details, shapes and colors on their partners face. We noticed the children were highly influenced by the partner they were working with and started adapting to the other’s style.
Jack and Charlie chose to use the same color blue. Charlie told Jack he did not know how to draw eyes so Jack taught him how. Carlie remembered to include ears, then Jack added some too.
While Sally chose lots of colors and an elaborate background and Leigh committed to one color, the girls drew inspiration from each other’s drawings replicating details like their tongues sticking out, eyelashes and eye brows and similar body structures.
Both Kian and Will asked each other to draw a second portrait because they did not like the way their hair was drawn.
Will: My hair is straight.
Kian: Okay I will give you one straight hair.
Will: That’s not what my hair is like.
Kian starts another drawing and makes adjustments...
