This artwork is based on a lesson plan another teacher in our school came up with. It is to design the letters of one's name according to a theme. This usually is not a simple task but this child came up with his sketch easily. It has a food theme, with the kitchen for a background.
The "A" is made out of apples, "n" is made out of noodles, "g" is cups, "e" is eggs, "l" is gummy bears, and "o" is a big meatball! I love the noodles, eggs, and meatballs (with sauce)--so unconventional! But I especially love the gummy bears; he came up with the most ingenious way of drawing them. This artwork, to me, exudes an overall cheerfulness and humor just like the young artist who drew it.
