When a child draws an object of nature, a tree, or a rock, for example, the child is experiencing nature itself. If solid, unbroken lines are used to represent the object, perception is fixed on something which isn’t really there. In reality, we perceive visual images as gradations of shade and color, never as the distinct outlines we commonly use to draw with.

The techniques given in these two lessons allow a child to have a different and truer relationship to the physical world.
