Zig-Zagy Art

Amber loves to spends hours upon hours creating very structured and patterned drawings. She's not as fond of other styles of art though. Quite often we find her with pencil, sketchbook, and ruler working away at her latest project.

While it relaxes Amber to meticulously work on these drawings, I am of the personality that would be driven bonkers within minutes of beginning these tedious patterns. Amber adores it, and that's all that matters.

She takes great pride in the patterns she devises and care to keep everything looking symmetrical. Apparently, the symmetry is of utmost importance in Amber's mind. My mind is still in awe of Amber's creativeness, since I can't fathom how one devices such patterns.

Unexpected Homeschool: Positive Thinking


  1. I am SO impressed you made it through the alphabet! And I love Amber's patterns. Thank you so much for praying for gary over the past few days, we really appreciate it.

  2. Wow! What talent and dedication to create such intricate patterns. I definitely don't have that kind of patience!

  3. I like them both. The first makes me think of Doctor Who and the second makes me want an ice cream cone. It is hot out and currently lunch time but I have neither required items.

    1. We recently started watching Doctor Who; I wonder if that somehow inspired her. Hope you managed lunch and ice cream :)

  4. What a talent! Does she ever use colored pencils to color them in?

    1. She does color them, once in a great while. Mostly she likes drawing them and not coloring. It takes her a while to finish each one because her hands only tolerate pencil gripping for so long. Sometimes she spends hours drawing, but in reality there were more breaks than drawing during that time. I think coloring requires too much hand control for her.
