We had our first home based art lesson with Teacher Huiyi on Monday. It was an awesome experience for us especially for mummy like me who can save the trouble of bringing the kids travel out just to attend art lesson every once a week. Best thing is my 2 children can have the lesson together! I suppose you can’t do it outside as most art schools that I have checked out divide the students according to their age group. Imagine having to bring them out 2 times a week but only 1 of them can attend lesson at a time. I really cannot afford that.
The children warmed up to Teacher Huiyi pretty fast and they started chatting away even before the lesson actually started. She asked the children what they would like to draw and they had no idea at all! So she started off suggesting them drawing some flowers and my girl shouted:”I want PINK flower because I love PINK!!”. Alrighty, pink it is my little one.
Here they are, starting their first home based art lesson. The teacher started by drawing a flower herself and showing it to the children with some explanation on why, what, how, where and when.
As you have noticed, the little one needed a little bit more help than her brother. But it’s pretty good that she understood teacher’s instructions and followed accordingly during the lesson while the brother was fully focusing on getting his flowers pretty and bright.
To my surprise, they completed their drawing and colourings within 1.5hrs. You can imagine how focused they were during the lesson. Before the lesson started, I thought they would run around (excuses to go toilet, drink water, etc…you know what I mean?) since they are doing it at the comfort of our own home. But they did not. This shows how engaging the teacher was, during the lesson, since she’s able to sit them throughout the lesson! Thumbs up! Want to see the final product?
We are so going to have more lessons with Teacher Huiyi! Stay tuned for our next arty update! 😉
