Creative Ambiance From Bola Rick Williams

Have you noticed that in most movies, when a couple is expecting a baby, one of the first things they make up is his/her room? (I never had a specially made room myself, so I'm always jealous of the ones I see). Then as the parents are looking for a school, one of the first things they notice is the environment. It's like the most colorful and attractive school gets noticed first, before other factors come into play. 

The thing is, ambiance is important for both learning and play. Everyone wants to be in an interesting, engaging and creative environment (especially if you end up there for long hours). Children are no exception. Which brings me to my point: Bola Rick Williams is a master at creating that interesting, engaging and creative ambiance for children. He exercises his creativity and imagination (and I dare say, 'inner child') everyday in his work- crafting, painting, molding, and even making 12 feet trees from construction paper.
What I love the most about Bola Rick Williams' work is the detail he puts into it. Much of it is 3 dimensional and not just the normal paint jobs that you see in a lot of Nigerian schools. He has honed his skills through the years by practice and professional training. With the energy and imagination he puts into his work, it's easy to see how much he enjoys it!
I wish my parents had called someone like him to make up my kiddie room- I bet that would have made my childhood that much more interesting.

You can contact Bola Rick Williams if you want to design your school, child's room, or even for Christmas grottoes and nativity crafts. Call his mobile +2348077621300, email him at rickestherbet@yahoo.com, or check his Facebook profile.
