Well for her birthday, our next door neighbor gave her a gift certificate for one hour with a professional artist that lives in our town. She was so excited.
On Tuesday we got to go to her appointment. I tagged along just so I could snap some photos of this momentous occasion! I never really realized her artistic ability until after this session!
Here are a couple of her drawings before her session.
She was really concentrating on what she wanted to do. Linda suggested that they draw dogwood blossoms since they were in bloom right now! I thought how ironic that was since just the day before, she had really taken some time to study them up close and remember all the details!
Here is her sketch:
And here is the finished project:
Pretty awesome huh?
I love the fact that as homeschooling parents, we get the awesome job of helping our children discover their hidden talents and bringing them to the surface so that God can use them for His glory. As I sit here writing this, I am getting a little misty eyed as I think of our wonderful Creator, the most wonderful Artist there is.
Are you helping your child discover their talents? If not, I urge you to give them the freedom to find it! Once that happens, find things that can help grow that interest!
