circles in sketchbooks








We are a week into school, which mean we are a week into our sketchbook work.  The age range in the class is three- to five-year-olds, and watching them work in their sketchbooks is fascinating.  Everyone uses space so differently; everyone represents differently; everyone's book, as always, is incredibly personal.

Today I offered a prompt that I didn't last year.  I drew a large black circle on one page of each child's sketchbook, and they used that page for their five-minute work.  It was fantastic to see how they used the space - some only used the inside, some only used the outside - but the idea of circles and spirals was continued in everyone's drawing today.
