school holidays : sydney : kids art

posted on: Monday, July 8, 2013




We've been uncharacteristically busy these hols. The teenager took his first flight alone interstate (basketball camp. Still obsessed) and the littles have been seeing shows and attending workshops.




I never imagined being this mum; this soccer mum type taking her kids hither and yon and making sure they all have enriching activities.

Once, when the teenager was 5 he played* soccer for a few months and I drove a Volvo but I was nowhere near as close to being 'that mum' as I am now.

Recently the kiddo and his school received some recognition in an art comp for NAIDOC week. The winning artworks were going to be displayed in our local library. So I strolled up with my camera to take a look. Not having seen his entry before I was very curious (and proud).

But I couldn't see anything that looked like what he'd described. I asked the librarian if there were displays elsewhere. No? I must've been mistaken.

I tried to get a little closer to some of the paintings, especially a lovely blue-hued one. And oh hey! It was his.




Can you tell me about this picture? I asked him later.

"Well, the humans are in the water, there are dolphins and Captain Cook's ship and boats are in the distance. And there's a koala doing a burp."

Of course.

* by 'play' I mean he ran around a little, including off the field and up trees.

  2. It really is good! Although the Koala doing a burp nails it for me, because my sense of humour is still that of a 12 year old boy's.
