Artist, age 8

The artist

Mr. Nowack’s Second Grade Class at Le Jardin Academy in Kailua, Oahu, held a special art show this morning. Our beautiful granddaughter Perrin was excited to show us her masterpiece. She has been talking about it for some time.

The work is entitled “Nine Puppies” and was inspired by Andy Worhol’s art, she said. She was the only student who made use of a computer app—Procreate App.

Other works of hers included a mask, a self portrait, “Hot,” and a miniature easel.

We found Perrin’s explanation of cool colors amusing.

We are so grateful for the school’s emphasis on the arts. You can tell from the photo that the teachers love what they do. Perrin said all three teachers are in the classroom at the same time.

I overheard Perrin’s mom say she would frame “Nine Puppies.”

Perrin, I am very proud to be your Popo. Good job!
