My 8-year-old daughter and I have come up with a fun drawing game that we’ve named, Echo Drawings. It works like this — I draw something on a piece of paper, then hand it to her and she draws the same image right beneath mine. We’re mostly drawing faces because we like to work at expressing emotion and personality traits through our images. We can do this for quite a long time; we laugh and goof around – experiment with our drawing styles. I have found this exercise to be helpful for both of us – we have stretched our drawing skills and created a very special bonding time. I am learning so much from her – she brings a fresh, free feeling to my work.
