My son started his art lessons when he was a baby in daycare! I remember those first foot and handprints we received at the end of each week, when he was still less than one year old! I will be forever grateful for those early lessons that continued until he entered elementary school. He then excelled for six years under the tutelage of Mr. Craig K., his art teacher from Kindergarten through fifth grade. I still thank Mr. K. every time I see him, and it has been over five years since 5th grade ended!
I am grateful that my son was inspired to learn and practice art at an early age because this has served him well, his whole life. It is so important that our young people are raised to learn and work on their art from a young age. The practice of making art can be soothing for our kids who have strong academic pressures today. The whole process was so perfect for my child that achieving an A+ in his art class happened every semester, even in high school. We are so proud! I have also seen him in his room drawing with his Pencil Grip supplies as a way to meditate, this makes dad very happy!
And we have been working with Pencil Grips for several years. Their products are amazing. See all of them here on their website, www.thepencilgrip.com! You can also see my son hard at work in the first post we did a few years back here! Did I mention he was an award winner (citywide) when he was in 4th grade?

When you take selfies all day, you have your own look memorized. This is a selfie that I will cherish forever!
