The Artist

Nayel H. (8 years old)

Nayel is a 2nd grader with a creative and artistic side. He enjoys all kinds of artwork from drawing, painting, sculpting etc. His recent school work involved exploring different types of natural environments where he painted a rainforest to showcase all the different layers and elements. He also made chalk art capturing Northern Lights over the mountains. His best work is making a monster comic book. When he was in kindergarden learning math, all his numbers had a face and he would turn them into characters. His teacher said she sees him growing up to be a cartoonist for Disney!

Other than art he enjoys soccer, skating and learning about outer space. He got a telescope for his birthday and wants to grow up to be an astronaut.
