Friends, how do you interpret a "Masterpiece"? I did not mean to copy famous artists' paintings. When I got this theme, I thought of children's wonderful paintings! Their unique and free drawings. How often I've heard from parents who boast their children are so talented. Indeed, children are so talented and the potential is unlimited! I'm very happy to hear parents passionate talks.
When I sketch people an outside, often young children talk to me and ask me to let them draw together. I'm very happy. They are full of confidence and so proud of their works. "Look, look!" they show off their work. I genuinely admire their paintings. But around 6 or after 6 years old, children say, "I'm not good as you," or "I do not do drawing. I do such-a-such." Children compare themselves with me or others and avoid drawing. I wonder if our too competitive society has stepped over these sensitive and talented children. If so, it is very sad.
In my workshops, the most important goals are two. I want children to know the joy of watercolour. And I want all participants have self-esteem and confidence. My workshop is not a competition. All children are wonderful achievers.
After my workshops, I hope children will keep enjoying drawing and watercolour painting whle throgh their lives.
Friends, Happy Painting!
