My teenage daughter loves art... creating, manipulating mediums and dreaming up her next idea. I think I was about her age when I really discovered my love for creating... and once I got a taste I was hooked!
She recently had a piece of her work "Vases" submitted to the 2011 Boston Globe Scholastic Art Competition. There were over 12,000 submissions and she was awarded a silver key for her drawing. It was a "blind" drawing in which she was not able to look at her paper while she drew.
The artwork of all gold and silver key recipients will be hanging from Feb 14 - April 7 at the State Transportation Building in Boston. On March 6th there will be an awards ceremony for all.
Below is a tile that was supposed to be submitted as well but was not finished. It is a 11Wx9.5H hand created 3D tiled mosaic of the landscape of Greece.
Mehndi Art inspired the following drawing which was submitted for the final of the class.
I admire what my daughter has accomplished at only 16 and look forward to seeing her grow as an artist, athlete, scholar and individual in the years to come.
