Drawing, Collaboration and Storytelling

Drawing with young children very often leads to storytelling. Here both the drawing and the storytelling took on a collaborative nature as two artists drew a family of houses. There was a mom and a dad and a baby and a grandpa house.
They drew together, even adding details to each other's drawings to expand their story and further develop the characters.
Painting brought color to the story and the family, sparking more ideas for developing the personalities and color choices. On the right is the head of a large caterpillar created collaboratively in a previous class by the same group.
