Shubhra Gaikwad – Little Artist

Today in our Artist Spotlight, we are going to meet Shubhra Gorakh Gaikwad. She is a bright, cheerful, and talented six-year-old girl living in Johns Creek, Atlanta.

Shubhra is a first-grader in Wilson Creek elementary school who loves reading, talking, watching movies, and making beautiful masterpieces. She started doing art at three and a half years old. Since then, she has fascinated us with her artworks. 

Did we tell you that Shubhra also likes to bake cakes and write stories? Isn’t she awesome? 

Can you tell us your favourite medium in Nimmy’s online art class?

“I love oil pastels the best!” She replied excitedly. 

Shubhra likes to blend the colors using oil pastels, and she can even blend colors using colored pencils, acrylic paint, and watercolors.

What do you like to draw the most?

Smiling, Shubhra excitedly replied, “People!” 

Shubhra also told us about a unique and lovely portrait she made as a gift for her mother’s birthday.

What else do you love asides from art?

“Storytelling!” While giggling, she continued, “I also love music, and I am learning how to play the piano.”

Shubhra recently got a piano and has been learning by herself from YouTube. She has also been taking martial arts and started learning Taekwondo when she was three years old.  

Our Little Artist is so full of energy. Her taekwondo master loves her and always asks for her if she cannot make it there.

She came second and third place in one of the Taekwondo tournaments. She even showed us one of the moves she did during the event!

What would you love to be in Future?

“A doctor or a teacher!” She quickly replied. Explaining her career choice, she said, “I want to teach everyone, and I want to be responsible and take care of people.”

Shubra is never bored. During her free time, she calls her grandparents and talks, and, sometimes, she will simply do some art & crafts on her pants. Yet, she usually ends up poking holes and cutting her pants.

She also plays mom or sister to her dollies which she has named: Bluey and Sally. From our conversation with her, Shubhra seems more likely to be a teacher when she grows up.

Let’s assume you are a teacher at Nimmy’s art class; what tips will you give your students?

  1. Be organized. You should always get your materials ready for artwork.
  2. Tip for Oil Pastels. You should take two colours and then mix the first into the second colour to blend.
  3. Keep practising! If you practice daily, you will become perfect.

Rightly said Shubhra! These tips are essential to developing one’s creativity in the arts.

Shubhra is love and light-packed in a soul and we hope to see more of her lovely artworks!

Stay tuned for our next artist spotlight.
