What title would you give this picture?

Sunset at the Lily Pad Pond

What materials did you use to make your art piece?

Paper, Outlining Pen, Alcohol Markers. I used a shading technique to create the sunset effect.

What do you like most about doing art?

There are infinite things to create and my imagination is limitless. I love expressing my creativity.

What would you like other Tumbleweeds Magazine kid to know about you?

I hear kids in my class say often, “I’m not good at art or drawing.” I always tell them that everyone is good at art in their own unique way. It’s impossible to be a bad artist. Even my baby brother, who draws scribbles is a good artist in his own way.
