When I was a volunteer for a local children’s bereavement charity (Phoenix Bereavement) I sometimes took the family art session. On one occasion I took 5 minutes out and decided to draw my shoe (they were favourites of mine; green suede with an electric blue strap). I placed it on my lap and this is the result of what I saw.  As I like detail but not masses of it, (too much detail & it looses something) I highlighted certain aspects only; the numerical code & label featured along with the regular neatness of the stitching. The children watched with curiosity and a few of them even went on to draw their own shoes too…
