During the summer, Faber-Castell offered a one-day art workshop for kids in our subdivision. Naturally, stage mom in me signed up the kulitog girl knowing how she loves art making.
Day of the workshop and, oh my, you should see the number of kids that trooped to the clubhouse. Kids ages ranged from 3 to I think 15 years old.
One activity was to design a sarimanok drawing. Mind you, design and not color .
At the end of the activity, my little girl's work got chosen among the throngs of children's work! Yipee :)
There were 5 of them who won but she was the youngest (2 being 7-10 yrs old and the other 2 teeny boppers na). She brought home art stuff from Faber-Castell and a few coupons which we used to buy her school requirements.
When his Daddy and I got home, we saw her work and was amazed at how she can create such an intricate piece and thought, this work is definitely frame and wall art-worthy. It now hangs proudly on our living room wall :)
Another latest addition to our 'wall of fame' is Sam's recent award in summer class that I framed together with his very first smiley face. Don't under estimate the smiley face, it's very versatile. Just add 8 legs and it becomes a spider; add 2 long ears and...taddah!... you got a bunny. Add a bunch of curly hair and he got daddy's face. See how powerful the smiley face is?
