Baloyannis expected his son to follow in his footsteps and study at the
technical University, but Bel-Jon had no interest.  Bel-Jon had already
shown a love of art and wanted to seriously study at the Superior School
of Fine Arts in Athens.  Panayiota supported him in his dream and told
him not to discuss it with his father and to just enroll in the Superior
when the time came.  Months went by before his father found out about
the change.  He went to see how his son was doing at the Technical
University only to be told that his son had never enrolled.  Baloyannis
went to the Superior to pull his son out and put him back on track, but
by then his son's professors could already see his talent and they
convinced Baloyannis to allow him to continue his studies.
