One painting a day keep depression away
My daily 45 min teaching for my 3 years old monster, 65 years young gran, friends and their little ones
Xmas 2020, instead of Santa we got lockdown II in London. After a long loud scream, I decided to adapt positively to teach my 3 year old and 65 year old gran painting daily along with children of friends for free. They might be amateurs but I don't want to sacrifice that with teaching them how to draw Peppa Pig. I believe they must look at master pieces and take whatever they can from it so I started with the impressionist masterpieces from Van Gogh and Monet with vivid colour. Then I introduced playful creative sessions and narrative painting sessions to stop them from running away and keep their precious originality and creativity. I try to rub in some life philosophy as well and connection to music and more.

I learnt plenty lovely things for free from youtube during lockdowns and hope this is my way to give back to society,
quality knowledge. This project was particularly inspired by my music composition teacher from WKMT when they started offering extremely high quality professional teaching on Youtube for free every week. I was very moved by their passion and encouraged to try also offer something great for the soul for free.
