Sketch by Muhammad Zulkarnain (Nine)
I need this documentation so that all the boys' stuff can be stored in a proper storage box. Thus reduce the mess that they made around the house.
Some of the work is just scribble on used paper. But I didn't throw it away because I believe the process of producing artwork is as important as the completed masterpiece itself.
This scribble work can later be used to explain to the boys how their skills have developed. Sometimes through out the whole process we will find different possibilities in life.
As for me I find that the process of documenting their works is a refreshing task which has the same feeling as one felt when one goes to different art gallery. It occurred to me that their artwork could have been something similar to what I'd done and forgotten during my own childhood; the way they made artwork straight from their heart and without much judgement.
Our children are learning from us but we also could learn from them. Together, we could respect each other.
