The family of Priscilla Soh '96Priscilla Soh ’96 sends us two beautiful works of art – a water colour painting of a crane, by her son Ethan Chang (aged 8), and an acrylic on canvas painting by younger son Matthew Chang (aged 6). Priscilla says, “Matthew does ‘serious’ paintings at art class; but on his own time, Angry Birds, Star Wars and Transformers are his drawings of choice!” We can’t wait to see what Hannah (aged 3.5 years) will produce, Priscilla – we hope you send us a sample of her work too!
