Very Special Arts - Special Art Monday class

I had volunteered in VSA for a term, taught in the following term and then worked there full-time as a project assistant for 3 months. Due to conflict of interest, I must stop teaching the class when I started working full-time there.

Really miss this class of special kids. They are between 6 - 15 years old with DS (down syndrome), ID (Intellectually Disabled) and Autism, all with very cute personalities. A typical class session will be like this:

Jiang Ker will laugh very loud in the class while Wei Kang will scold him with "Shut Up!" and Vivian, the cutest 6 year old girl will try to imitate either Jiang Ker or Wei Kang. Samatha is very quiet and independant at work, but once she get out of her seat, she will hop like a kangaroo. Judith, the little princess will keep coming to me either giving me a very tight hug or kiss on my cheeks. Hahaha...

Judith's monster has so many eyes!

There is always this "dancing & happy" feeling in Samantha's works.

Wenhui wants to be an illustrator when she grows up. She's very smart girl.
She learnt French from a language CD and tried to speak French to one of our French artist.
