Boy gets into trouble for doodling during lesson time – hired by restaurant to create wall art

A very gifted child named Joe Whale discovered first-hand how the numerous standardised tests that students are required to complete restrict their inventiveness.

Joe was given the chance to develop his talent and made a commitment to focus more during class now that he had discovered a venue for his expression.

Kerry, his art instructor, was astounded by Joe’s outstanding work. She explained, “I asked his parents for some of his work to check his level and could not believe what I was looking at; we transferred him into an older class right away.

When Kerry made the decision to post images of Joe’s work on Instagram, amazing things started to happen. Kerry was called by the proprietor of the neighbourhood eatery “Number 4” and asked if Joe would like to use his drawings to decorate the dining area.

When Kerry called Joe’s parents, they gladly accepted the offer.

“He was in school getting frustrated at the little amount of art he could do so he used to doodle on the table’s whiteboard in class and get into trouble for doodling.

“We’re so proud of everything he’s achieving, the fact that a completely independent business has asked our nine-year old son to do a professional piece of work for them is incredible.”
