Primary 1 drawing contest

April, 7 years old was informed by her form teacher that there would be a drawing contest on the second day after the school reopened. The title is My favourite toys

During the school break, I informed her Art teacher whom I engaged outside the school, on the title of the drawing. Her Art teacher  prepared a few designs and let her choose. She chose the below one.  Her Art teacher wanted her to choose the other one, but she insisted on this one.
After one complete cycle of drawing and colouring at her Art teacher's place, she did a few more rounds of practices at home.
 This was one of her practices at home.
Yesterday, she told me that she was the first runner up. Today, when I sent her to school, I went to take a look at her drawing, as well as other winners' drawings.
Apparently, the champion's drawing was the one that her Art teacher wanted her to do, but she refused. (p/s: The champion and April were engaged with the same Art teacher.)
This champion drawing had the best illustration of My favourite toys, I reckon.

They are only primary 1 students.

  2. Wah, nice drawings. Next round April would be champion!

    PS : Regarding your question on tomato spaghetti sauce.
    You can refer to my vegetarian blog post, http://veganformation.blogspot.com/2009/06/vegetarian-angel-hair-spaghetti-recipe.html

    Just replace bean curd strips with minced beef or chicken.

  3. All the contestants had done a very good job. Well drawn and coloured. I do not know how the judges pick their favourite, but I certainly know that all of them deserve a big pat on their back. They are all winners! Like you mentioned, they are only in Primary One.

  6. They have very good colour shading skills. April's art is very good..to me hard to find a champion, they are all similar good.

  7. Another round of 'way to go' April!! Congratulation on her winning!

    I reckon the champion's drawing is more vibrant, very colourful and catchy, I love April's shading but since the theme is rather cheerful, it's vital she chose more choices of vibrant colours!;D(my 2 cents)

  9. Hi, I am back to comment. Looking at April's artwork, I sometimes regret not letting Ian continue with his Art classes but he has only this much of time everyday to carry out his already packed daily activities. :(

  10. I think April's artwork is better than champion's. She's very artistic. Keep encouraging her.

  11. April is so talented! Congrats on her winning. Seriously, I don't think I can colour as well as her, with the shading and all. I'm lousy in art :(

  17. Ditto Eugene. That shows self confidence at a young age, better than any drawing could be. :)

  20. Hi Aunty Yan! Everytime I see April's drawings, a piece of my childhood memories always comes up inside my mind. I remember that, when I was at April's age, I really did envy a kid like April, who had this kind of drawing/coloring talent because my ability in this area was totally bad. So during my primary years, I learned really really hard by myself to achieve that 'talent' and fortunate enough for me, it seems the way I draw is way better now ^^ I believe, April will be a great artist if she keep practicing and congratulation for being a first runner-up! Shud be proud for that okay ;D

  22. wow....fantastic...April's artwork is so so good especially the colouring part.

    April, congratulations to you and keep it up.

    Being the first runner-up is not easy and Yan, I believed you must be very proud of her.

    I'm sure she will be the next champion.

  24. That's very nice!! Good job to April. I am thinking of sending my girls for art class too, after seeing the difference in those who attend art class.

  26. It is better to let your child come up with her own ideas. She should draw her own toys instead.
