I’ve been around kids since I was a little girl. I’m the youngest in my family, so that being said, I’ve become an aunt when I was only six years old. You may not know this, but I was also working with kids for eight years. I used to be a teacher and I really enjoyed my work. The main thing I love about kids is their pure happiness which comes from small things and creativity with no barriers.
When I first found out about t-shirts which are designed by a 4-year-old, I quickly googled it to find out more about it.
Juvenile Virtuoso is a “small family owned t-shirt company that seeks to capture the striking beauty of our world through the fresh eyes of child artists”. After I reached out to them, they were more than happy to send me one of their t-shirts which showcases the young artist’s pencil drawing of a hippo.
Gifted_kid_artist, whose name is Walter, was only 4 years old when he did his first drawing for Juvenile Virtuoso. His parents said that “sitting and focusing on his work has a calming effect” on their son.
From my own experience, I really enjoyed seeing my students when they were 100% focused on a task they have in front of them. How so motivated they are to put their vision on a piece of paper. It’s like the whole world doesn’t exist and even if there is noise around them, they are still in their own precious world. I was really happy to see what Walter’s parents did with his artwork. I was even happier when I put on my t-shirt and I could feel what a great quality it is!
Last, but not least, what’s even more greater is that 10% of all sales are donated to Arts for Healing, Inc., which provides integrated art and music therapy to a special needs population of all ages and abilities. In addition, there are plans to feature some of the artwork produced by Arts for Healing clients in the Juvenile Virtuoso T-shirt line.
I cannot wait to see what the kid artists will come up with next! 🙂
