Welcome to one of our Saturday morning coffees. Attendees asked for a follow-up and I thought it would be nice to share the follow-up through this blog for them and then if you didn’t get to attend (because of course you are always invited) you can get an idea about what to expect. You can find the whole schedule <here> which includes a link to register.
At some point, drawing gets a socially-constructed connection with artistic ability and expression. At about the ages of 7 or 8, children will begin to sort themselves into those “good at art” and those “not good at art.” An underlying theme is the inability to draw and drawing. This is carried into adulthood and muddies adults’ impressions about how to support this form of communication.
