This is my Rose Wall Art Project.

In 2009 I did a drawing of Weeping Roses. One was a black rose on a white background, the other of a white rose on a black background. The image was used on multiple websites and personal pages as it was easy to copy and paste on various pages. It has also been used on a cover of a CD and for a group protesting Sea World.

Till this day I still find it by searching Weeping Roses.  I’m rather flattered it has been so popular.

Rose Wall Art and Books

Envision a wall that would be covered with individual hand colored roses. Each colored and decorated by a child that would be a representation of their personal style and interpretation of their visit to a rose or botanical garden

These cast paper roses will involve an introduction to recycled paper making. And will incorporate wild flower seeds or herbs. Then colored these and mounted on a wall. Viewers can purchase them as a donation to the botanical or rose garden and take them home to be planted. The wild flowers will attract butterflies and bees and others can enjoy some fresh herbs.

This project could be incorporated with a educational tour provided by the "Rose Garden" as a way of teaching the children about the various flowers and colors. Through observation and study the kids can get some ideas for completing the project mentioned above or create an artist book with their comments.

I hope to help raise funds and obtain sponsors that will provide the "Rose Garden" operating monies and for upkeep. As well as publicity and awareness to the community.

Help with funding for this project will be appreciated. I would like to purchase materials, plaster, paper, paints, markers etc. If you would like to donate please click on the Donate button or if you have materials and art supplies that you would like to donate please e-mail me at the contact list below.

As an Art instructor, be it teaching drawing or paper making, we all need to use our hands, visualize and see things or maybe even take a walk to look, listen and think of possibilities.

Art is a connection to those things and it is a vital tool for our creativity as individuals. Learning just the basics of drawing can bring ideas and thoughts to imaginable being. Getting our hands dirty from paint, graphite or mud makes us feel alive. Seeing things in a fresh light can bring stimulating and exciting changes in our environment. And in ourselves.

I personally get excited and thrilled when my students get those Ah Ahhh moments. When after doing various class assignments they see progress and the possibilities. Their confidence increases, they feel excited about whats next and they look forward to what they will be able to accomplish as their skills increase.

Whether it's a child with their innocence and freedom to explore or the adult that begins again to have that freedom and take a chance to explore - this is what art does, this is what art is, and this is what I try to do as a teacher.
