"My daughter and her best friend have been taking serious oil painting classes where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured."
She shared the North had been working hard to complete the piece, which took her several weeks. Kardashian had wanted to share her talents with everyone.
She called out the "grown adults" on social media and media outlets who questioned her daughter's painting abilities. She asked how dare they see a child being "awesome" and challenge them.
She ended her message and said for others to stop embarrassing themselves with the negative and allow every child to be great. Kardashian had shared North's best friend's artwork too.
North's best friend. Ryan's mom, Tracy Romulus, spoke out against the bullying North had received about her painting and shared that their daughters took art classes. She said:
“It’s people like you who keep children [sic] from dreaming big or reaching their fullest potential.”
Romulus shared that the artworks were original, and each child had completed the whole piece themselves, from the "blank canvas," each using their own interpretation to finish it.
The proud mom shared her daughter's artwork to her Instagram, where she defended her daughter and North's abilities on her Instagram story.
Kardashian pointed out a headline from articles that questioned her daughter's abilities. She also shared posts from fans supporting North on her Instagram. One wondered if she was the next Pablo Picasso.
The reality TV star has previously stated that North is just like her musician dad, Kanye West, and gets her creative and outgoing personality from him. In contrast, Saint is more like his mom.
