Welcome to another year of The Blooming Artists Project!
In our fourth year, The Blooming Artists Project connects student artists with master artists from St. Louis school districts. Students in K-12 create works of art in their classroom and submit 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.
This season of the Project is sponsored by a grant from Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis, the Greater St. Louis Art Association, Artmart, and will be held at 1900 Park on May 12th, 2017.
