The Blooming Artists Project connects student artists with master artists from the St. Louis area. Students in K-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 invited to select 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.
I just met with my artist and her family this week. They were so excited! It will now start creating a painting in my new style that relates to my young artists work of art. We will communicate throughout this process and then all of the young artists and their Master Artist will show together at a gallery party. I will update soon.
