PEÑITAS—Pedro Reyna said he started drawing as a child in the third grade. He would practice creating shapes when making doodles of Mickey Mouse and Superman. Now, Reyna has his artwork displayed at the Peñitas Public Library for the month of July in part with its summer program.
The 59-year-old gave a presentation to children at the library last week and instructed them how to draw specific features and how texture is added. Reyna said he hopes to instill a love for art in the children of the Peñitas community.
“They (students) were very curious to find out how some pieces were done,” Reyna said. “It’s a nice exhibition for any artist that wants to see it and get inspired.”
