Campbellsville Elementary School students recently made their own “-ish” drawings.
In Adrienne Hash’s art class, students recently listened to the book “-Ish” by Peter Reynolds.
In the book, main character Ramon loves to draw.
However, Ramon becomes upset when his brother doesn’t like one of his drawings. Ramon believes his drawings don’t look “right,” and eventually quits drawing.
But Ramon’s sister tells him she loves his drawings, even though they aren’t perfect. Her favorite, she said, is one of a vase.
Ramon’s sister says his drawing looks “vase-ish,” and began to see all his drawings differently.
They all look “-ish,” he said, and he began drawing again.
Hash told her students that although their drawings might not be perfect, they are all “-ish.”
And, she said, students should always draw to have fun and be creative, and not worry about everything they make being perfect.
As a project, Hash asked her students to draw four of their own “-ish” drawings, without worrying that they are perfect.
Below their drawings, students labeled their “-ish” subjects.
