Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

Sascha and I had a three hour long art lesson this morning using her dinosaur drawing book. We did three of the dinosaurs together.


Ornithomimus, pen and colored pencils on paper.


Sascha's Ornithomimus complete with silver gusts of wind from how fast she's running. She might be plump but she's still a runner! Pen and colored pencils.


Protoceratops, pen and colored pencil on paper.


Girl Protoceratops by Sascha, pen and colored pencils on paper. She came up with those interesting markings all by herself.


Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pigma Micron and Pitt Artist Pens on paper.


Mother Tyrannosaurus Rex with nest full of eggs, sun peeking through storm clouds, tree fern, mud puddles and raiding Quetzalcoatlus beak. She signed it vertically in cursive lettering. Pitt Artist Pens and Pigma Micron on paper.

She used both the Pigma Micron pen and the Pitt Artist Pens very carefully without smashing the tips down, so I may get her a set of Pigma Microns for herself next Christmas.

I had a Rapidograph technical pen from my dad at age ten. I'm pretty sure my granddaughter will earn one too the same way I did. She's doing fantastic. She's decided to bind together all of the dinosaur drawings. I gave her mine, so they're part of her dinosaur art journal too. She also did a pink and purple girl brachiosaurus on the 4th. It was the first time I let her use my spare set of Pitt Artist Pens and she was very gentle with them.



I'm awed by this little girl's skill and care with her tools. She's learning so fast it's wonderful!

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

How old is Sascha? How can you consider moving away from this kid. Grandparents are in a position to foster a child's interests, especially if they coincide with their own. My paternal grandfather gave my my first pony! He liked horses and had used them for farming. My dad wasn't very interested in horses (but very much into farming). Grandpa died when I was 10 years old.

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

Absolutely amazing...both the girl and the patient teaching she has received! Wonderful job, both of you!

She has a great future in animation!

I think most kids destroy tools because no one takes the time to show them how to handle them...I know as a kid I'd not have wanted to ruin my stuff! What a lucky girl Sascha is...I've got my fingers crossed that you never move away from her, too!
And I hope she NEVER changes her sig. Its very unique just as it is!
Cheers,
D.

What a delightful experience. Awesome that she has grandpa there to nurture her budding artistry. Tell her she's doing great from me. I think it's wonderful that she wanted to keep all the drawings together.

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

Adorable! Yours are fine too, Rob. :-)

For age 7, these are really good, what a delight for you and her to share making art together.

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

Thank you! Here's what she did today - a mother and baby blue whale swimming above a fish they intend to eat. She's not very clear about what type of whales eat krill or fish but still, this is great!

I read all your comments to her and she was so happy about them.


Colored pencils on blue construction paper, from imagination/memory. Notice the grooved belly on the whales, she's seen humpbacks in documentaries.

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

Robert, you have a very talented granddaughter. It's great that you can support her in her painting. She must love seeing her work online for all to see and comment. Just one more esteem booster. I wish I had someone to guide me when I was young and loved art. I might be in a different place today if I had the same support. Kudos!! Cali

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

I too love the tyrannosaurus rex. Love yours too, gorgeous colors! I'm getting reminded of when my niece was that age - there's a picture of us both sitting on a stonewall with our sketchbooks open and my watercolor pencils. She's my honorary grandchild, since no one shows any signs of presenting me with an actual one.

But it looks like she's an unusually good observer for that age.

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

very nice. . . that fish is 'hiding' in plain sight? The fish is very pretty. . . too bad he will be dinner - lovely details on the whales.

Thank you! When she comes upstairs later I'll show her all her comments - she'll be so thrilled!

Re: Art Lessons with Sascha, Age 7

Robert, I see that the artistic talent runs in the family. What a great project to do together!!! I'm sure it will be something she will remember for a long time. It's great that she is so careful with the materials, and her work is just super. Way to go, Sascha!!
