Ds (10) is is year 6. He came home yesterday and said he found art difficult. They had been asked to paint a picture of a view they could think of if looking outside a window. He drew a lego figure. I am disappointed as we are always encouraging creativity/imagination. He has mild LD and adhd

I don't understand. Unless there was an actual Lego figure outside the windows he could see out of, he was using his imagination.

What I'm saying is that all the class painted a view from their imagination and he couldn't think of anything

But he did think of something, a Lego figure is something from his imagination.

Buy it wasn't appropriate to the lesson and he came home feeling deflated

Ok, so you need to help him find ways to interpret tasks like this. Ask him what else he could have done. Give him an opportunity to do the task at home. Ask school to give him more help.

Why are you disapointed?
He has a learning disability and needs help interpreting things like this. Help him understand.

Going to try the painting at home tonight. He seems to freeze up with these things at school and hopefully can encourage at him with no distractions
