I remember liking to draw as a child. In the first grade the whole class drew flowers using crayons. I drew tulips with one of the tulips bent over the edge of the vase. All the drawings were taped to the windows of the class facing the street. One day a woman found her way to our class and told our teacher she liked my drawing of the vase of tulips especially because of the bent tulip. My ego went through the roof. It doesn't take much to encourage a child.
