Sometimes, when I send Delwin to his art class, I will catch sometimes to chat with his teacher. Mr. Teng (the professional artist) always say that Delwin is lucky to be born in this family where we can accept art as something valuable. For me and hubby, we see things very differently. We find that Delwin is really gifted in art. We do not want to kill his gifted talent. What he need now is a professional person to guide him in his art. Honestly, it is not easy to guide him either. You do not know when he will listen to you and when he will pay attention to what you say. But, somehow later he will able to deliver what we had once told him before.
For Delwin arts or drawing, most of the times there are messages behind. Mr. Teng always like to find out his messages behind the arts. Then, he will share it with us. We in the family love to see his art too. It is still a kids drawing but sometimes when we looked at certain of his artwork ......... phew! don't think me and hubby can do it. So, parents if you kids draw - don't just throw away the paper when he finish drawing. Try to look at it. Maybe you can see a message behind it. Dear parents, if you kids do have gifted talent do not kill it. At least give them some support. By doing this, you might not realise you help them to grow too.
