Line Portraits from a Young Artist with @oxtlxnes
For more bold, minimalist faces drawn by Hayley, follow @oxtlxnes  on Instagram
In her spare time after school, 16-year-old Hayley Connolly (@oxtlxnes) draws portraits of her Instagram followers.
“I usually draw based on requests, but sometimes I will draw my idols, like Cara Delevingne (@caradelevingne),” says Hayley, who lives in northeast England. “My illustrations are mostly portraits, so they are all about the facial features. I try to make them a mixture of realistic and non-realistic, and I love to make them look almost cartoon-like.”
Hayley’s inspiration comes from looking at Instagram accounts from other teen artists, whose work she wishes was more visible in larger artistic communities.
“I think it is really important to see art made from teens. We haven’t made our life choices yet, so we’re looking at the world in many different ways,” she says. “We’re really in the height of our creativity because we are growing up.”

Creating Leaf Art with @143roy
For more photos and videos of Roy’s leaf art, follow @143roy on Instagram.
“I grew up in a place where most houses have their own mango, guava or other fruit-bearing trees in their backyards,” says Philippines Instagrammer Roy Mallari (@143roy). “We have a mango tree and an avocado tree that I planted myself, and the materials for my leaf art mainly come from this avocado tree.”
Inspired by other Instagrammers like Red Hongyi @redhongyi who create and share their original artwork on Instagram, Roy also began exploring his creativity by taking household objects and arranging them into his drawings and designs. Besides avocado leaves, he likes to use flowers, twigs, stones and and even leftover egg shells from breakfast.
“Leaf art is a result of my wide imagination, where I can create art from the simplest things that often go unnoticed,” explains Roy. “It brings out the real me, as it allows me to pursue what my heart desires the most—which is art.”

Accidently found these photos and suddenly miss those times. For about 1 year fought together involved emotions such as anger,disappointments,happy and all that kind of stuffs. What a struggle that we passed till we can arrived on that day, October 9th 2011, where we officially finished our duty as the Student Officer. It doesn’t matter of disappointments and all that negatives things because it always worth in the end. What a grateful day.

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 
Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.
