Riona loves drawing. She can point out theories and big names associated in drawing; tone, forms, texture are easy for this 8 year old.

Her favourite subject matter to draw are found in the environment and in her family. I will help her to create a big picture at the end of the four lessons with these elements.

In her first lesson, she had learn how to creativity make images with three basic shapes; Circle, Rectangle and Triangle. I drew a face, a truck and a pizza. She then drew a flower, house and cheese.

I then suggested for her to develop on the circle and taught her proportions in the flower and petals. After some practice, we moved on to a bigger drawing where she took about 30mins to complete three big flowers against a backdrop of the yawn and sky.
