Hugh Jackman - Patron Of The Arts


hugh-jackman-oscarParenting is tricky. You want your kids to be interested in the things you like, but be their own person with likes and dislikes of their own. Where do you jump in and when do you pull back?

Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborah-Lee Furness, are trying to encourage the love of art in their son Oscar, because he first showed an interest in it.

They are excited because he can already identify some of the masters just by looking at them.
“He’s very artistic. We took him to a Picasso exhibit and it was all Picasso and he goes, ‘Mum, that’s not a Picasso.’ I go, ‘Yeah it is, it’s a Picasso exhibit.’ ”

“And he goes, ‘No, it’s a Georges Brach,’ and he was absolutely right! He loves to color, he loves art, so I’m really pushing it.”

Note to self– take kids to more museums and art galleries.

How do you drive your kid’s interests?
