So what do you say to young artists without sounding patronizing "oh, that's lovely Billy"? You can talk about their use of color, don't tell them grass is green if they made it purple - maybe they didn't have a green crayon or maybe they wanted to make the grass purple.
You can tell them they made interesting shapes, point out strong use of lines that convey energy. You can tell them their work is very expressive and original. Ask them what they drew instead of trying to guess what it is. You'll often find your guesses would have been wrong anyway.
What are your thoughts?
Wishing everyone a great day.

Thanks for sharing.
I have read many accounts about children remembering their past lives, how fascinating indeed.
That deserves a thread on it's own.
