Hmm…upside down drawing by kids? ๐Ÿ˜Šโฌ†๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ

Recently I have experienced a kid in my kids expressive art workshop whom she actually drawn her dad and mum upside down. It was an amazingly beautiful portrait of her dad and mum though ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I quietly observed her during her mum portrait drawing progress that day, she drawn the whole portrait upside down, then when she has finished it, she turned her mum portrait up right and told me “Teacher Sienny, she is my mum!” ๐Ÿค—

Should we as teachers or parents to worry when we note a kid who draws upside down?

Nope, don’t worry, keep calm & steady with your kid’s unique drawing style ๐Ÿ˜„


Our brain does not completely form the concept of left and right until somewhere between the ages 5 to 8. This means that almost all children will have persistent reversals when they first start writing & drawing.

So, stay calm, and don’t ever limit your kid’s creativity by constantly pointing out what is wrong. For instance, when your kid learned to walk, you wouldn’t have kept telling your kid to stop because not  proper or of trying to correct every step of your kid. 

In this connection, do avoid making a big deal & correcting your kid. The over reactions & corrections may then discourage your kid from future attempts at writing & drawing.

Actually it is also an art technique that we called as observational in most of the art schools, especially for fine artist. 

When we turn an image upside, it looks unrecognizable & our visual system will create a shape allusion to help our brain make sense of what we are looking at.

When images are turned upside down we see line, shape, tones and light much clearer & more vivid. And we are more focused on the simple forms our brain is to recognizing rather than the complex visual perception in our memory. It also tries to make out shapes & negative space. As a result, when we turn drawings upside down often while working to check ourself & to see proportions easier.

So, don’t worry when your kids write or draw upside down, stay clam & relax to enjoy your kid’s drawing ๐Ÿ˜Š

My Japanese little artist ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿค—


Started to teach this little artist since March 2016, at his young age of 4 years old, he speaks good English. That’s why SiennyLovesDrawing doesn’t know that he is a Japanese ๐Ÿค“


Until in one of the art sessions, he told, ‘Teacher Sienny, I am a Japanese.’ And I then started to learn Japanese from him ๐Ÿ˜Š We are exchanging or perhaps system barter trading between us ๐Ÿ˜‰ I teach him art doodling & he teaches me Japanese. Yeah! Always enjoyable sessions with him!

Still remember am truly impressed with his 1st session with me, I guided him step by step for a detailed sun doodle with magic colour pens. I was aimed to check on his ability to follow instructions & focus level. He did a fantastic sun doodle with me, and he starts to show his creativity too in his 1st art session. Wow! ๐Ÿ˜„

Sun doodle was named by him as he smiled & said at the end of our 1st art session, ‘Teacher, I like this. It is like a sun I saw every morning when I go to school.’


He is a very detailed, diligent & well mannered little artist. He is focus in doing his artworks.

Really like the way he washes the paint brushes after each session. Frankly speaking, not many 4 years old little artist can carefully clean the paint brushes like him. If got chance, SiennyLovesDrawing would like to learn from his parents about their excellent parenting tips ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Progressively, SiennyLovesDrawing is introducing him to feel & use difference art materials, crayon, watercolour, skills, using brushes, mixing colours etc.

Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing is being engaged again by Murfest team to conduct kids doodle session in a school holidays programme on 17 March 2016 (Thu) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Why princess Sienny? Because most of my little artists from my kids expressive art workshops love to draw me as princess. One of the little artist actually called me as Princess Sienny Elsa ๐Ÿ˜‰โ˜บ๏ธ


Details and programme agenda as below for registration. My kids doodle session at 11.10am to 11.50am.


Earlier blog posts on my working collaboration with Murfest team in 2015,



Update: 17 March 2016, 12.33pm with the lovely photos of 35 little artists ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It was a great self potrait doodle session without demo on a white board, only simple instructions with frequent communications with each kids. Kids expressive art aims to have the kids to express their own feeling, thinking & creativity through their doodles. You will be amazed kids’ doodles mean a lot more from their stories telling, don’t ever underestimate little artists’ capabilities. If too much instructions given, it will then be the facilitator’s expressive instead โ˜บ๏ธ Listening & be with the kids are the keys though ๐Ÿ˜„

“Teacher, am a dinasour so that I can protect my family.”

“My family members all in love shape, because we love each other a lot.”

“I wish my hair grows longer and longer.” said a short hair girl who told me she is sad due to a forced hair cut recently.

“Recently I learnt 12456 from school, I love to go to school.”

“I like to wear dresses, am like a princess.”

“I like lightning, all my family members surrounded with lightning, just as a protection.”

At the end of my session, some of the kids came by, “Teacher, I am going to hang this drawing in my bed room. I like drawing myself”๐Ÿ˜Š

You all so awesome! Thank you very much for all your participation ๐Ÿ˜„
