Well, the story continues. on Tuesday, March 26 2014, Laolu finally got a chance to meet the kids and answer their questions as well as teach them a little about what art means to him. He had such a great time with the first class that Barbara, the art teacher asked him if he could stay for another period to teach them. This time, the pictures have to speak for me.

The first class listens as he introduces himself.
