“I’m drawing Elyse! I’m drawing!” - Saul, 3.5 years
Finding a platform for us to do a collaborative, digital drawing experience was inspired by Audrey's love for using the digital drawing feature of Seesaw, our interactive platform for sharing photos, videos, and our work. With a little help from Jen, we found a way to do this through the Zoom app!
Most of the dialogue during this call was about navigating the features of our digital drawing program. There was also a lot of silence during this call because everyone was so busy working on the collaborative drawing.
Here are some samples of the work that we did together. At times, you will notice that you can see a gray box with a name, which pops next to an individual's drawing as they work.
Our favorite way to end our calls each day is to do "Sleeping Bunnies". With each passing day we are getting more and more creative.
Sylvie had expressed interest in being “sleeping computers” for the end of our call. Alright, so we’re going to be sleeping computers, but what are they going to do when they wake up?
“They’re going to do the same thing we were doing today!” - Sylvie
They’re going to draw?
“Yeah, they’re going to draw on themselves.” - Sylvie
Quick question though. You wouldn’t actually draw on yourself would you?
“No, but in one of my books I saw someone draw on their face? With a red marker.” - Sylvie
That is so silly. I do not recommend that.
“Do you know that bunny Max and Ruby? Max is so little that even did that. He drawed on his face.” - Sylvie
But you wouldn’t do that. You wouldn’t draw on yourselves?
“Yeah only if I was a baby.” - Sylvie
[Giacomo leans into the computer, puts his hand to his mouth and said:]
“Sometimes I draw on myself. It’s not a lot. Just some tiny marks and stuff. Sometimes on my hands. Like watercolors last night” - Giacomo
Giacomo, you made it sound like a secret because you were whispering like this.
Audrey and Tegan spend time drawing after our call

I heard you were drawing with Tegan yesterday. What were you drawing?
“Puppies. Only one puppy.” - Audrey
Were you drawing together?
“Yeah! Mommy has a photo of it on her phone.” - Audrey
She drew it on paper after. - Sarah
