I thought that since I spoke so highly of Choupy and his drawing class with the younger children, I would show everyone what his class looks like. Here he is, with all his pupils crowded around him, in one of the classrooms at the primary school. Don't they look eager?! Kisha, I KNOW you can relate to Choupy and all his little ones in his face.
This is Fery, one of the older boys. (He is 14). He is working really hard on a drawing of a tree branch. That was the lesson on this particular day. Choupy brought a branch into the classroom, showed the students how the leaves and smaller branches connect, and then drew a picture of the branch on the board. He circled important areas for them to focus on copying, and then gave them each a piece of paper and crayon to try to duplicate. It was really an impressive lesson. He is working very hard.
Daniel is so impressed with him that he is generously donating some money to help fund Choupy's class. We will be buying more paper and crayons this week so the children don't have to share, and maybe they will even get two colors to work with instead of just one! Thank you, Daniel.
