Since Lydia was about a year old, she's been really into Arts & Crafts. I started to think about how her artwork as evolved over the past year, how she has explored different media and materials, how her grasp has improved, etc. I thought I'd arrange some of her creations in chronological order to compare them.
|Lydia's first marker drawing at 14 months|
|Lydia's first painting at 17 months|
|Lydia's first 'food' collage at 18 months|
|At 21 months, Lydia painted a picture for daddy for Father's Day - First time painting on a canvas surface.|
|Lydia's 1st set of finger paints at 22 months. She was hesitant at first, but then dove right in!|
|At 22 months, this is the first drawing Lydia identified as being something. She said this was Daisy (our dog). You can see where she has drawn the head, body, and legs.|
