This is my 2.5 year old daughter Lily.
And a chalk drawing of a pear.
She drew the outline.
She shaded inside the lines.
She even drew the squiggly stem.
Without any direction from me.
I am proud of her creative talents and terrified at how fast she is growing up. Just yesterday she was shoveling mashed pears into her mouth, not even able to hold a spoon, let alone draw with chalk.
I’m calling the Art Institute on Monday morning.
