Amazing Kid Artists

Once every 500 years or so, a really special artist is born. Someone like Leonardo De Vinci or Michelangelo comes along and totally changes the way artists draw, paint and sculpt masterpieces. In this new millenium there are a couple of young kids that have been turning heads in the art world, keeping all of us guessing about who will create the next Mona Lisa!

Aelita Andre is a professional painter and she is only four years old. Her paintings sell for thousands of dollars! Her most expenisive painting sold for $24,000. A lot of people don’t understand why her paintings are worth so much money because all of her paintings are abstract and to the untrained eye, they look like anybody could paint them. However, if you watch her in action, you might understand how unique of an individual she is and why everyone wants to buy her art.

Kieron Williamson is nine years old and he is making a big splash in watercolor paints. He was never interested in artwork until he was 5 years old and he saw some boats on a family vacation. He asked his mom for a drawing pad and a way he went. At first his drawings were only average and what any 5 year old child would be capable of drawing...

But as time went on, Kieron became a World Class Artist with the ability to paint as good as anyone. He held his 2nd art exhibition where he displayed 16 of his recent paintings and he was sold out in only 14 minutes making over $30,000. Here are a few of Kieron’s secrets:

  • Looking at other people’s drawing and paintings
  • Learning how to mix colors together to make other colors
  • Using only the best quality of paints (professional paints, not the poster paints you might find in kindergarten)
  • Learning how to work with all types of paints (watercolour, acrylic, oils)
  • Studying and practicing with good teachers

Wanna Go Pro?

If you want to become a professional painter like these kids, it’s never too late. Aelita and Kieron are great examples of children who take the first steps themselves to do spectacular things with artwork. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of courage to try and see what happens!

I guess it depends on where you live. If there is a state / country that doesn't allow you to have a phone until you're 13, that's utterly ridiculous and I'd imagine they're in the minority with that law.

No idea if someone's already written a reply similar to mine, I didn't read much of them because this isn't really a debate, it's more of a straight up question with the answer being because quite a lot of people under the age of 18 are incapable of making responsible votes. I mean, let's take a step back. Everyone knows Trump would be a ridiculous candidate to vote for, his views are borderline (if not full on) fascist. He wants to keep a database of who is Muslim. If you don't find that ridiculous and outright bigotry and discrimination, don't even bother me with your response. (Long story short, vote for Bernie Sanders, I live in the UK and even I know that) Anyway, I'm going off topic. The reason I detailed why Trump would be a terrible person to vote for is because everyone with common sense knows it, meaning people under 18 too. And what happens when you give voting privileges to a 14 year old basement dweller who spends all his time on # ###? He thinks it's funny to cast a vote for Trump. In fact, it's not only your average pre-######### teenager who will find this funny, there's probably quite a lot of people who would vote for Trump "for the lols". Yes, there are people like that. And what happens when enough of these idiots think it's funny to vote for Trump? He racks up a decent amount of votes, not to mention all the ignorant racists who will be voting for him, and let's face it, there's lots of them. Maybe you, as a person under 18 would not vote stupidly, I know I wouldn't, but sadly, people who are under 18 and mature don't make up the majority, meaning you're going to get a lot of people who don't know what they're doing voting for dumb reasons whether it be "for the lols" or because they're voting for who their parents support.
