Kid’s Art Show: Sculptures

Dragons have been an amazing source of inspiration for Kid. He has read books, made drawings, written stories, played imaginary games, and sculpted. Recently he has been really enjoying using Sculpey clay, and below are a few sculptures he has just finished working on.

Kid taught a class!

Kid has read most of the books about dragons at the library, and by doing so made a friend with a librarian who is also a fellow dragon lover. Inspired by their conversations, Kid made a dragon sculpture for her out of Sculpey and gave it to her as a gift. She showed the teen events coordinator at the library who then invited Kid to teach a class.

Above is the collection of all the dragons that were made in his class. It was a lot of fun, and because of teaching this class he was encouraged to teach a class at the local art store which is a paid gig! Also, someone commissioned him to make a dragon for them. I am a proud mama, and proud of the people at the library for encouraging my son to pursue his interests.
