Yiu Yiu had been attending art class at Da Vinci since she was four. Like any franchised child enrichment centres, we find the centre rather commercialized and somewhat impersonal. So recently we switched her to an independent art centre near our house. The proprietors of this centre are artists themselves, and the centre looks like an art studio. Each week the students are given a theme and it’s then up the their imagination to create a piece of art befitting the theme. Here are the first few pieces of her work:
Theme: my family
After the first few classes, the teacher commented that she's not very confident in drawing, and takes a long time before putting pen to paper. This stems from her worries that what she draws might not turn out nice, hence her hesitation to even start. Hopefully she'll gain more confidence as she continues her lessons.
