I was going through my photos the other day and came across this one taken after a decorative painting workshop held with 7 to 9-year-olds during a “Winter Camp” for girls in Kuwait.
Every single one of them finished their project which was a plaque for their room.
This was the first time I ever agreed to teach the art of decorative painting to children and to be honest, it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be! LOL I have to give them credit though – they taught me a lot about patience and perseverance. None of them complained that it was difficult or that they couldn’t do it. They were truly fearless!
I knew that their span of attention would be short so I kept the class very short too. I was really happy that everyone was able to finish their painting in the two hours! At the end of the class, a few of them came up to me and asked me when the next class was…unfortunately I had to turn down a request to hold regular classes there because of the unsuitable timings.
Still, I have to say that I was fortunate to be able to introduce them to the art. And I know they really enjoyed the experience.
