Rediscovering forgotten skills 

      No Comments on Rediscovering forgotten skills 


I have been working to reduce the amount of time Gavin spends on his tablet during the day. Part of that process is requiring him to practice some of his other skills during the day. 

The first forgotten skill is drawing. 

Gavin used to spend a great deal time drawing. He hasn’t been drawing in for quite awhile. I’m not sure why, but I’m trying to reintroduce him to his past love of art. 

At some point during the day, Gavin is required to take a break from his tablet and draw three pictures. As time goes on, I’ll introduce different tasks as well. This is meant to keep his brain working, as well as broaden his horizon. 



Gavin has no complaints about this and I’m hoping his love of drawing with naturally reignite. 

Anyway, here are a few of his most recent drawings. They’re relatively simple when compared to his previous drawings but he hasn’t done this in a long time, and he’s doing this willingly. He seems to be enjoying it and that makes me happy. 

I don’t mind that he uses his tablet for games, but there’s more to life and I trying to help him rediscover that.
