Hey there,
I love my students, all of them, even the pains. I try to reach them all,
otherwise I'm not really doing them right. But once in a while you get
a jewel.
I can't take credit, he just showed up, Vova and his sister Katia (the
gymnast) newly
arrived from Mother Russia. I knew he did great work, I'm been saving
his first
painting for the 2000 Scholastics Art Awards. But since Brandon (my
student teacher)
has been teaching my classes, I really haven't watched Vova that
closely. But, today
I graded Art Notebooks.
What a delight, every thumbnail sketch he has done since he came to

kid has potential.

Just Luck, Woody in KC
