On a lighter note, after that grim philosophical post yesterday: Matilda showed us her school art show at System’s Little House in Hanoi. And it was fantastic! Among the attractions was a cool Space Room filled with astronaut figures, a diorama of the planets and stars, a collection of Martian clay figures, and a soundtrack of a countdown and blastoff.
Elsewhere, there were plenty of other drawings, paintings, and activities. And Matilda really got into the fundraiser: selling cookies to raise money for the Moon Bear Rescue Centre in Tam Dao. She sold a lot of cookies, and got a big bear hug from her teacher for all her hard work. Nice job!
Also on display was a fantastic series of “camouflage” portraits the kids did by painting their faces, having photos taken, and then then adding colors and found object to the photos to make a collage. As a completely unbiased art critic, I can say with authority that they were incredible! Way to go, junior artists! (Click on either photo to view a Flickr gallery of photos from the art show).
