Fine Young Talent

Joy’s nephew Phillip recently entered an art contest for Unschool kids. These kids are lucky to have parents that see to it that they learn, at home, in an unstructured format. I know there are exceptions but it seems that I have heard of many of these kids that excel beyond the norm. Phillip and his brother Gordon seem to be two of these kids that thrive in this arrangement.

I personally think his artwork is exceptionally good. And the judges must have felt the same, he won ‘Best of Show’. Congratulations Phillip!

His Mama:

His piece, titled “Window Shopping,” is a Paint Shop Pro generated image of a puppy passing a butcher shop window. As Phillip says, “The puppy is transfixed when he sees the display of meat in the window.” Gordon gave him the idea for the title of the piece. He was interviewed on the news and he was awarded an oil paint set/kit. He is very proud of himself, and he is looking forward to next year.
