“I dont lose, I either win or I learn,” by 13 year old Samarth A from Mysore
Hey everyone, your friend Sara here! Welcome to my colourful ‘Art with Sara’ section.
Here I publish the writings of young artists who not only share their beautiful work, but also manage an equally challenging task of ‘expressing their art.’
Today’s wonderful artwork is shared by a young artist who talks beautifully and honestly of his journey with art. What a wonderful message to every child who thinks they are not naturally blessed with a talent.
Samarth A is a 13 year old from Mysore. He is a student in 8th grade at St. Joseph’s school(C.B.S.E), Jayalakshmipuram.
Samarth is delighted with his art classes at The Hobby Place, for nurturing his talent.
When I was in grade 1, I didn’t draw so well in my drawing books and notebooks nor in other subjects . I didn’t know how important drawing was and how it would affect my future studies.
I wouldn’t join drawing classes because I would love to play video games instead of learning drawing. Even when my parents forced me to go, I was still stuck with my stubborn behaviour.
One fine day at school, it was drawing period and I got scolding from my teacher, asking, “Why can’t you draw like your sister?’’
Everyone in my class laughed at me and that day gave me motivation to start focusing on my art.
When I reached grade 4, the same teacher appreciated me for my gradual change in art and drawing.
Whenever I would start, the drawing looked pale and lifeless but whenever I used to fill colours in it and finish, it looked really beautiful.
I would be proud of myself, once I finished my artwork.
My favourite painting is palette knife painting.
