my 8 yr old artist


i know i'm biased but COME -ON!!! tell me that's not amazing!!! he's better at art than i was at his age, and i had lessons. that is one thing i miss about a big city... i wish we had an art studio with teachers for the kid. for now he'll just have to keep doodleling on his own. dude you are so cool.

Wow! That is amazing skill for an 8 year old. Was that drawn while looking at a picture or just out of his head? And I love the new header photo! It's true to life.

pretty sure he was looking at a car when he was drawing it. but the other day he came in frantic saying "mom...quick...paper! i see something in my head that i want to draw!" and he drew a pretty cool airplane...i think he has artistic talents

Awesome! Much better than I can do! I wonder if there are "online" lessons or anything he could do? Or there might be an artist in your small town that would be willing to give him lessons... it would be worth looking into.

He draws way better than I do and I am 27!!! What an awsome talent to have. My oldest likes to draw too but way more into water colors. Your little artist!!! Oh and love the picture below of your son Kyle!! He is helping you cope with your kitty's. ;)

I don't think you are biased at all- that is amazing talent right there! He must have inherited some of your creativity!

Vanessa, Nate is great! Piper loves art too. I bet he is much happier away from school for the summer. I have a cousin that is a famous artist now and he started just like Nate just drawing things he saw in his head and copying other pictures. His work is amazing now. I did a post on his work in Feb~I can find it for you if you want to see it. His name is William F. Reese and you can find him on Google too.

That is pretty sweet. I used to do drawings like that when I was in Kindergarten and stuff too. You may have the next Picasso on your hands. I changed my area of concentration in my major to art education, so maybe I can be an art teacher soon, then Nate and I can have fun! :)
