Living with Dyslexia in Malaysia

Foo Shearn’s drawings




30 -05-2009.  OMNI’s Educational Fair.  In the Art competition FS’s T-shirt painting  above  won him the 2nd prize in his age category.


26-3-2009 :  The Official Opening of the Dyslexia Association’s Ampang Head Office.  FS presenting his drawing  to the Queen of Negri Sembilan.  FS drew a sketch of  the intricate wood carvings from the Negri  Sembilan’s Palace.


8 June till 11 June 2009.  The famous artist Yusof Gajah taught 20 dyslexic kids at the Ampang Centre (sponsored by SHELL during the June holidays) how to draw and paint. A real hands-on experience for the kids (especially FS who only sketches with pencil) and they are proud to show off their paintings as above under the artist’s guidance. Yusof Gajah is on the right. The kids paintings will be incorporated into SHELL’s calendar 2010.



18-7-2009: Art Competition (Festive Seasons) sponsored by La Farge Cement. FS drew Santa Claus and it was a foregone conclusion that he will win in this category as can be see below.


The judges arranged the  4 winners accordingly: Hari Raya, Deepavali, Christmas and Chinese New year. As can be seen above, FS’s  Santa Claus was  chosen as the winner. Unfortunately, he was disqualified as he drew his Santa Claus in Portrait style and not Landscape as required.

It was a lesson for him –  to listen and abide by the rules in any competition. Nevertheless, the Judges gave him a consolation prize for his effort.
