(12 at the time) drew a banana.It wasn’t a
why he chose that particular one to draw.
was impressed at how three-dimensional his drawing was.
And how much it looked like the real banana which he drew.
teacher at school told him to do it again.She said it didn’t look like a banana at all.
“Bananas don’t look like that”, she said.“It’s the wrong shape”.
“right” and what is “wrong”?
It may be art….but is it a banana?
It may be a banana….but is it art?
You be the judge!
“Next time”, we said, “we’ll take a picture of the original!”
couldn’t find another banana to draw….so he drew a lemon instead.
We took a picture of the original.And here too, is my son’s drawing of that original.
teacher took in my son's drawing (and the photograph) without comment.
