Drawing is very important for children as it teaches them the fundamentals of art. How drawings are composed using tone, perspective, vanishing points etc. Many children do not know that artists have learned to draw by doing observation-drawing practice. They often assume that you can draw or you can’t. Of course this is true, but it is also true that you can lear how to draw at any age. Drawing ability comes from practice, practice and more practice, which leads to focus, familiarity and confidence. Visual information is useless unless you notice it.
