  1. These are beautiful Nadene! How did you learn how to draw, and how do you teach it? I used to love drawing in high school, but lost interest. I drew mostly horses.


    • @Julie, Thanks! I have always loved drawing! I teach my children to look carefully and draw what they see. They love art too and they seem to improve with practice. We also use books that help us develop our art skills like Drawing on the Artist Within and Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards.


      • Wonderful! I’m going to check my library for these. I seem to only be able to draw a tiny bit well (blush) if I can see another person’s drawing and see the lines. I can’t seem to see how to draw with looking at a photo or a real person. I’m hoping to practice, as it is so relaxing to me.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
