Ok, I have to write about this special child that I get to teach. When I first got to the school that I am at now, his teacher came to me the first day of school and said…”One of my second grade students drew this, look out for him, you will know who he is, nurture his talent.” When I connected who he was I was in complete amazement at his giftedness. Have you ever had a student like this? If so, tell me about it. This student was painting on a high school/college level in second grade. He is in fourth grade now. This is his latest piece which he drew entirely free hand and painted with watercolor titled “Dreaming Awake” that he completed this week. He can paint for 5-6 hours straight with no break and he is only 10 yrs old! He is that kid that all the other kids want to sit by and call their best friend because he just has a magnetic sweet selfless personality. I LOVE teaching art!
He painted this last year,3rd grade, titled “Vendedor de Imaginacion”
