Uncle Jun had to modify some contents a bit coz he made a few bloopers when he started PICASSOKIDS. This looks a lot better now, don't you think? Thanks.


Justin's interest then shifted from cathedrals to Egyptology and action anime.


At age 4, Justin drew a lot of cathedrals. Here's a couple of them...


Joi with another of her family portrait


At age 5, Joi drew this picture of her family...a happy family !


Joi drew this on a computer using Microsoft Paint at age 5


This is Joi's earliest work, drawn at age 3. She glued this to the fridge, making sure it stays there forever.


Joi drew this wonderful picture when they got their shiny new bikes. They fell off their bikes a dozen times but still they rode their bikes.


One day, while doing some math, my paper mysteriously disappeared. It appeared a few minutes later with Bubut's drawing, one of his first artworks drawn at age 3 !

This be yer uncle jun. I'm looking for your artworks but can't seem to find any. Send your artworks over pronto so we can show them to everyone.
And you can also join the NAME GAME! E-mail me your names and tell me a bit about yourself so we can draw something that should fit you.

Mika is Joi's classmate and good friend. Mika and Joi would always spend a long time talking on the phone. Sometimes Mika would come over to Joi's house and they would play for hours.

Bubut is pretty naughty. He plays a lot. He likes to run and jump and roll on the ground.
He also loves to play soldier or policeman. He loves his toy guns. He even plays with his grandpa's old BB gun. He marches around the house left-right-left. And he salutes you "Sir, Yes Sir!"
At age 4, Bubut is also taking up Tae-Kwon-Do lessons and he packs a really high kick.


Next, let's try JOI !
Joi too is very friendly. She also has very nice long hair.


Let's have fun with names...your names! Tell me your name and i'll draw something and let's see if it fits you.
Let's start with JUSTIN ...
From the drawing, you can see Justin is very friendly. And he's also smart. He actually reads a lot.

Off To The Beach

Justin, Joi and Bubut went to the beach today in Batangas. I bet you they'll be drawing plenty of beach scenes in the next few days. I can't wait to post em here.

I'm inviting other kids as well to send in your drawings. It would give us all a good idea how different kids see the world around them. Draw pictures of your favorite things. Or draw pictures of what you would like to be when you grow up. Or draw pictures of what happened around you today.

Got drawings you made years ago? Post em here! Those are priceless!

E-mail them to alternatec@gmail.com.

Evolution of Art

As I was going through Justin's drawing, I was amused to see how from simple lines and stick figures, his style evolved into more complicated and anatomically-correct figures.

As kids age and learn what can and what cannot be, so too their points of view change accordingly. As they learn that they live in a regimented society rigidly bound by norms, they realize that they too must comply.

Innocence lost.

Here's a FUN fact : Pablo Picasso started drawing around age 7, and among his first words was "PIS" which was short for "LAPIS" or pencil. From simple childish doodles, Picasso's style would eventually evolve into masterpieces worth tens of millions of dollars today.

So kids, start doodlin'.

Hey! Hey! Hey! The Kids Are All Here!!!

Finally the kids came back home from their vacation. Picasso Kids Justin, Joi and Bubut spent a week in Batangas with their grandma and cousins. Judging by their tanned skin, they obviously had FUN under the hot summer sun.

Right away Justin and Joi showed me some of their masterpieces for posting. Bubut is still working on his.

And I'm still waiting for your little masterpieces. It would make Picasso Kids' Corner a lot more interesting if we could have artworks from different kids... from different countries... from different points of view. Send them over to alternatec@gmail.com and uncle jun will be delighted to post them on this site.

It would even be nicer if you could pose with your artwork as little Joi did.

Why Picasso?

Why not Picasso?

Don't get me wrong. I'm a big fan of Vincent Van Gogh. However, his tragic life story does not sound fun. and FUN is what Picasso Kids' Corner is all about.

I could call this DaVinci Kids' Corner yeah. But then wouln't this sound like these kids were into breaking codes and cracking age-old mysteries?

Besides, Picasso sounds FUN doesn't it? Just try saying it. Picasso... Fun right? Reminds me of pizza. Or peaches.

By the way, Justin, Joi and Bubut are on vacation so i still don't have their drawings for posting. Hey but don't let this stop you kids from sending in your masterpieces. E-mail them to alternatec@gmail.com and uncle jun will be more than happy to post your drawings here. I'll be waiting for them.

the beginning...

as a young 9 year old school girl, my 74-year old mother once drew a picture of a chicken with four legs. And we were all very fond of hearing her story of the 4-legged chicken.

however, as much as we imagined what she actually drew ages ago, we can never really replicate or duplicate that very unique drawing. How I wish we could've saved that drawing for future generations to see.

this thought prompted me to come up with this blog where I could save for posterity drawings little kids like my nephews Justin and Bubut, and neice Joi have created.

free from rules, limitations, and norms. radiating with innocence and humor. these masterpieces reflect the world as seen from the eyes of little children. something big people will find quite refreshing.

welcome to picasso kids' corner !
