'Antiques Roadshow': Woman Shows Off Rare Michael Jackson Artwork

'Antiques Roadshow': Woman Has Michael Jackson's Childhood Drawings

On "Antiques Roadshow," a woman who went to school with Michael Jackson brought in artwork the King of Pop had drawn in the tenth grade.

The woman said she used to watch Michael Jackson draw in art class, and then he'd bawl up his work and throw it away. One day she asked if she could have a Charlie Chaplin picture he drew - he said sure -- to take it home and enjoy. When she brought home the artwork without a signature, her Dad suggested she go back and get one ... it was a good thing she did.

"It's tough, there aren't a lot of comparables out there, but we feel that these would perform very strongly at auction and would give an estimate of about between $8,000 and $10,000 each."

Fans on Facebook were loving the episode -- some learning for the first time that Michael Jackson liked to draw.

Turns out, Jackson did love to draw and more - he even used a Santa Monica airport hangar as his studio and art storehouse.

Do journalism student have to study spelling and grammar anymore? Michael Jackson might have bawled (cried) but he didn't bawl up his artwork, he BALLED it up. Geeez......my english teacher are rolling in their graves!

And a lack of competent editing, apparently.

Good on her. Everybody deserves something nice of this nature. It is as if that everyone has some little sparkle in life tucked away somewhere.

It wasn't spelled wrong- it was the wrong word!

You can tell how boring this topic actually is by all the attention paid - not to the article but to typo and general lack of knowledge.

"....Then he'd bawl up his work..." I think you mean "BALL up his work."
