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.
