A Happy Artist
Meet Isabelle, a devoted painting student at our school, and a recent winner of the TVO Kids “Draw Your Selfie Contest.” Isabelle is a hardworking six-years-old, who is currently in grade one. Her favorite color is yellow, seen in many of her paintings. Her favorite practice is painting, and while she does not have a favorite artist right now, she draws inspiration from animals such as bunnies, cats, and dogs.
She enjoys her weekly classes here at CCSA and likes to collage pictures at home! Her favorite project she worked on here at CCSA was her prize-winning self-portrait. She completed this painting over the course of one class which is an hour and thirty minutes, using sharpies, watercolors, and acrylic. She was unsure about drawing her signature braids, after practicing she perfected them and she is very happy with it! She submitted her self-portrait in the evening, and received a phone call the very next day that told her that she was a winner!
As part of her prize, Isabelle received a special Art Kit from TVO Kids containing different art materials such as oil pastels, watercolor, brushes and pencil crayons. She has decided to share her art kit with her older brother like the caring girl she is. When asked about her favorite part of making art, she said she really enjoyed working with many colors and “when it’s all finished together!”
