Sharing You Craft With Others...
The Blooming Artist Project 2017

Tree of Yggdrasil by Rose Houghton

Well it is that time of the year that I get to be a part of a wonderful organization call The Blooming Artist Project. I get to share my craft with young inspiring artists.

The Blooming Artists Project connects student artists with master artists from the St. Louis area. Students in 3-12 created works of art in their classroom and submitted their photos and statements. Master artists who have made a name for themselves and have influenced art within our community are assigned a student’s piece and then connect with that young artist. The master artist ultimately creates a work of art inspired by the student’s work. The project culminates in a formal gallery opening displaying both the student’s and master’s work side by side. The intent is to show young artists that their ideas have merit and can inspire even seasoned artists.

The young person I got to work with is Rose Houghton and she is wonderful. She is a 12th grader at Ritenour High School. She has a love for Mythology and the cover for Rick Riordan's book "Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard" was her inspiration.

  I being a lover or Nature, I love the tree presence of her work and I built upon that aspect of
her painting . My work is named "She Rose Upon the Sunset".

I'm excited to show for the first time the Shrine and Necklace I came up with from her wonderful art.  Loved her spirit.

 The opening reception of the fourth annual edition of The Blooming Artists Project! The exhibit runs from May 12th through the 28th at 1900 Park in St. Louis, MO. I can't wait to see all the pieces together will up date you on all the fun. Hope to see you all there.

 Remember to Take  Care & Stay Creative!!!
