My wee guy just doesn't like to draw and I think I pushed him too much when he was really wee. I really wanted him to draw. Since then, I've decided to lay off though. He doesn't like the pressure. Or need it. Instead, I model. "What are you doing mama?" he probes as I sit on the couch doodling away. He's curious. And a little more open to putting crayon in hand.
He still prefers white crayons on white paper or yellow on yellow though. It makes me wonder if he's just shy about what he's creating. Or if he has a bit of an eye ... one that appreciates the subtleties and power of tone-on-tone.
