Sample Answer


Well, in my childhood, I loved to do numerous kinds of activities such as playing cricket, reading comics, watching cartoons, and drawing. However, today I am going to talk about an activity that I enjoyed when I was a child.

The name of that activity was “Painting”. When I was in VI standard, my school had organized an art competition in my school and I participated in it. At that time, I developed an interest in this activity. Whenever I did this activity in my childhood, this activity gave me huge satisfaction and a sense of relief. I generally did this activity alone in my room because that was the only place where I felt comfortable.

As I am fond of different kinds of art such as western art, portraits, sketches, and traditional paintings. Every year there was a painting competition held in my home town. It was organized in my locality hall and individuals can participate, and even schools can send their students to do something productive.

Many times, I achieved silver medals in art competitions when I was a child. Nowadays, I still have an interest in this activity but I hardly get time to do the painting because of my hectic schedule. Even I also made an art page on the Instagram application where I love to upload pictures of my art.


So, this is an art activity that I enjoyed the most in my childhood.
