I suggested that we do some art together. He was all for that because he loves to draw. He wanted to draw, guess what? Soccer pictures. He is really into designing cool uniforms for soccer teams. Again, not really my idea of fun.
I wanted him to try something different, so I pointed out some ideas that I had found for artwork. He decided that he wanted to do art like Romero Britto (a famous Brazilian artist). I quickly found this little art lesson, we talked about how to do it and went to work.
It took a while to finish the project.
We had a new appreciation for Romero Britto and the way he combines patterns and colors.
Anderson was very proud of his work and we think it is frameworthy for his room.
PS. Giovanni was also proud of his work, although not exactly in the style of Romero Britto!
