Today was very exciting. We came back from few days in the Sounds (region in the top of the South Island that looks like fjords). I was invited to Abbie's (my 7 year old niece from NZ) school to talk about what I do as a job!
I tried to explain to the whole class that I draw, cut paper and play on the computer all day. 'Wow I want to be an artist!'.
I showed them my ink sketches and did a paper cut demonstration. I was put to the test to draw on the board everyone's requests " a pirate, Dinosaur, car...."
I was very impressed by their very colourful classroom with the kids self portrait and painting of the Kiwi birds. Thanks to Ms Phillips and Abbie for inviting me along!
I guess your niece must have been very proud!
And btw, I've been following your blog for a little while and I'm very impressed: it much be such an enriching experience for the whole family that I guess everyone of you will remember for a long time. Bonne route! S
