I had the pleasure last week of giving a one-on-one art lesson to the grandson of a good friend. Eli, is 5 years old and has shown a keen interest in art. We sat together and went through the basics. I was fascinated by the perception of what he saw and how he applied that to a sheet of paper. We drew people, trees, flowers and bumble bees. Like my father did with me, I took his hand in mine and together we drew.
Now I know how my father must have felt inspiring me to continue in art. Eli and I will get together monthly expanding his talents. The session lasted about an hour then we all went out for Chinese.
