Kid Told Not to Doodle in Class Gets Hired by Restaurant to Decorate Their Walls
Nine-year-old Joe Whale turned his passion of art that was once frowned upon into a display that everyone has fallen in love with.
Joe was getting into a bit of trouble at school from doing what he loved, drawing. According to his father, Greg, he has always done very well in academics and even got placed in the gifted program. However, he apparently felt like there was a lack of art he could do at school. He loved to doodle on the whiteboard in class which did not amuse his teachers. His parents ended up enrolling him in a after school art class.
Joe’s art teacher was so impressed with his work that she shared some of his drawings on Instagram where it was spotted by a local restaurant (Number 4 in Shrewsbury, England). The restaurant reached out to Joe and hired him to decorate their inside walls.
Now Joe has created a website, Facebook and Instagram page to share his art with others and it’s been a huge success!
Congrats Joe! We think your doodle creations are awesome and encourage you to keep doing what you love.
