I have been teaching Tarek since he was 5 years old. I enjoy teaching Tarek a lot. He has a remarkable sense of humor and I especially like to watch him get very creative. I got a big laugh when I had to teach him how to put Gucci shoes on his dragon.... Tarek was participating in my Beginners class at the start of the pandemic. When I began to offer the zoom classes, I asked Trish, his Mom if she could draw along with Tarek so that she could be available to offer hands on help for Tarek if he needed it since I could not teach in person any more. Trish has been drawing with Tarek for about a year now, and has blossomed with a new found sense that she can draw. Please enjoy their beautiful drawing below. Most of these drawings are examples of the projects that I teach with colour pencils online using Zoom... Many thanks to Trish and Tarek for sharing your beautiful artwork!
Here is Trish's Story:
"My son, Tarek, has been working and growing with Ms. Judith for several years now. We feel beyond blessed to have her in our lives. Tarek said, "I want to stay with Ms. Judith forever."
She has given him a creative outlet; he has learned so much about colour, texture, and form. And, most importantly he has grown in confidence and focus. Each week he has created a beautiful piece of work that he feels extremely proud of.
After the COVID closures, Ms. Judith was able to pivot the class into a very successful online format. I decided to start drawing alongside my son and it has been a tremendously wonderful experience for me. I never knew I could draw.
With Ms. Judith's guidance and explicit instruction, I have created some pieces that have piqued my interest in learning more about art.
Creating art has been very calming during these difficult times.
I have had this unique opportunity to bond with my son and he is so excited I am drawing with him!!
Thank you, Ms. Judith, for sharing your passion and talent for art with my family! We are truly grateful! "
