Colors, lines, dots and more!

Jay went for a holiday art workshop at WOWArt Studios over the September school holidays, and in deciding which class to attend, I showed him some sample artworks to see if he’d prefer to do some craftwork or painting.

Now, his latest ambition is to be an artist, so it wasn’t a huge surprise that he chose to do painting – and opted to go for the Romero Britto class, which would be 2 hours long! I admit I was hesitant if he would be able to last the entire two hours, but to my surprise, he enjoyed himself so! My knowledge of art and artists is… sad, to say the least, and I think it is pretty cool for Jay to be exposed to this at such a young age!

Jay all ready and excited to enter his classroom!

Jay spotted me eventually though, and excited puts up his half-done artwork. Hmm… looks okay so far, I thought, but not particularly impressive.

But THIS is his final artwork. IMG_8589

He admiring his piece of art.

Which now hangs proudly on our wall. His grandparents saw and were so impressed with it, they wanted to hang it at their home, to which my pleased little artist said no to, cos he wanted to see his artwork too! Haha!

Which once again brings me to ask that same nagging question… to start his art class again or not? :P

Wow, you have a little artist on your hands! I couldn't paint that well, but I don't really have an artistic bone in my body. Hehe! Well, I am pretty good at scrapbooking so maybe that counts. :-)
