“Everywhere I look, I see ART. But I don’t think my mum always sees it.” A boy creates art all over his home including drawing on and making holes in walls, painting chairs and breaking mirrors. He doesn’t understand why his mother doesn’t appreciate his creativity. 

“I am SO talented, I just can’t help it. EVERYTHING inspires me!” This inspiration comes from “nature, colours, movement, textures and shapes.” He reflects on how his mother feels and declares “I am going to make an AMAZING piece of art, especially for her.” But it remains to be seen whether his stressed out mother will appreciate his efforts.
