Child Syrian Artist – level 2

21-06-2021 07:00

A Syrian child held an exhibition for his art. His name is Rayan, and it is possible that he is Syria’s youngest artist at five years old. He learned painting three years ago when he was two.

His grandfather taught him the hobby. His grandfather said that his grandson uses some techniques of painting correctly, but he is still learning how to do everything.

His grandfather added that his grandson knows how to paint shadows by using two colors.  One color shows a light side and the other color shows a dark side. This means that he understands shadows and lights in his own way.

Difficult words: hold (to organize and have an event happen), technique (the method and skill that you do something), in his own way (in a way which is specific for one person).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
