Awesome Inspirations from South America!

It always a bonus as an artist when a piece of artwork touches others and can speak volumes to those who admirer it. But it’s even better when a creation can inspire an entire class of kindergarteners to create a whole body of works from it!  I recently received a wonderful note on my Facebook Fan Page from Miss Vanessa Mispireta a teacher at the “Colegio Peruano Británico, who teaches  kindergarten in Lima, Peru whose entire class decided to create a fun art project all based on my paintings!

The class consists of five and six year olds who first reviewed my website by looking through the website and learned a bit about me and my artwork. They printed some small borrowed  images which were assigned to the students, they proceeded to sketch the designs in pencil and paint the background first in tempera paints.  The next day they painted the center designs and following was the outlining of the design in black with the help of their teacher.

It’s so truly inspirational and amazing!  Here is the class photo they shared with me, these little children showing off their wonderful creations is so wonderful and I am so very touched!

These children really inspired me!  I want to show my thanks for having my art be part of their art project creation so we printed out their class photo and here I am holding it.

I see many future artists out there, I say keep up the great work and keep on creating – the most important thing is to have fun with drawing and painting and paint things that you like. Be proud to show off you art!  Thanks again to Miss Vanessa Mispireta for the inspiration for your students!
