How to create an ink robot monster while sitting next to your best friend at the art table:
|Space Station guys in all yellow ink and Robot Monster in all black ink. Of course.|
Start with one black pen, then draw!
Here are two boys who chose to work next to each other at the art table - they are best friends - and both have their own vision of what will come to life on their paper: their unique vision, their unique hand-eye coordination, their unique motivation to create what they will create.
Doesn't it fascinate you to see what children will create
when their time is THEIR TIME?

Consider the alternative IF I HAD TO BE "in charge" of art time:
How would I know to offer the one boy only a yellow pen and the other boy only a black pen?
How would I know that one paper should be turned wide and the other paper turned tall?
How would I know to direct them to outer space for their vision and to write space terms?
Art and time is for the children.
Our job is to provide materials, variety of spaces to create, and time.
How hard is that? it is not.
