AskMe about Scale of Artistic Ability in Children August 3, 2015 4:10 PM   Subscribe

Hi all. I remember seeing a post on AskMe about a parent trying to assess their child's artistic ability based on a link they provided with drawings that showed what is standard for each age group. I've searched google and through the Arts questions with no luck. Ring any bells?

"Coloring is not a life skill" is going into the rotation of things I tell myself regularly.

I'm the OP! I've relaxed about the issue and have given my daughter my water color set, which she loves.
Still no stick figures, but at least she's having fun!

According to that original link, we peak artistically between ages four and six, or after a healthy mix of alcohol and marijuana.

I don't know, I'd be pretty happy if I drew that eight-year-old bulldozer.
