I was looking for a picture to illustrate today’s quote by artist Howard Ikemoto (below) and happened upon just the thing ― I found it in my one surviving primary school exercise book. And no, it’s not upside down.
“When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college ― that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?” Howard Ikemoto

What a lovely quote!
…and drawing too! Makes me want to go through all my old school books! 🙂
Ha, ha! I just posted some drawings that I did when I was in 7th grade. It’s nice to look at things we made in the past.
A wonderful quote!
Oh, that is lovely! I heard once that if you could hang on to knowing how to draw through your teen years, you wouldn’t forget. So I guess maybe people do.
LOL! Great post! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
