Cbabi Bayoc, a STL painter with a passion for family, art and creativity visited SLLIS yesterday, April 11! He presented to all of the TFS 1st graders and then set up his easel in the hallway and created a beautiful portrait in 2 hours. The students had wonderful questions and were in such awe of his talent.
His message to our students was to keep practicing, saying that he wasn’t good at painting when he started, but he didn’t give up. This visit was in conjunction with the past 2 PYP units – ‘Communication through the arts’ and ‘We tell our history through artifacts’.
A big thank you to the parents who made his visit possible and who have purchased one of his 365 Days with Dad paintings to donate to the French School. The paintings will be received the week of May 22nd.
