When we were designing the study area for the kids, I drew up cupboards that formed a T-shape and the hubby was the one who then suggested "Why not let's make it into a tree?", which sounded like an excellent suggestion. Yet, it was easier said than done. We came up with ways to make a tree-like structure, we searched for furniture pieces that resembled a tree before we decided that the best way would be to paint a backdrop of a tree and then do a customised cupboard with shelves to represent the tree trunk and branches.
We asked if our painters could help us to paint an outline of a tree but alas they couldn't. We thought of painting it ourselves but couldn't imagine if it would turn out the way we wanted it to be. So after a few weeks of feeling at a loss yet determined to press on with the idea, you bet I was very much relieved when the kind teachers at heART Studio said that they could do us the favour and pop by our new house to paint with the girls.
So, you have already seen the wall mural of the beautiful Singapore skyline that Angel painted together with Teacher Elma. Today, I'm sharing about the tree that Ariel painted with Teacher Syafiq which I call the Tree of Knowledge because it will be our library corner and house all our books in future.

If your kids are keen to pick up art as well, do check out http://heartstudiosg.com/ and get to know more about the awesome teachers there. It's definitely a great place for the little ones to learn about art, be creative and enjoy at the same time.
