Under Summer Activities:
The Annual "Little Picasso" Art program at Rosewood will begin its third week on Monday, July 24th.
Cynthia Hamilton, artist in San Miguel, well known for her encaustic art, also the owner and founder of the "Once Upon My Pillow", an amazing eco-friendly business, had joined a roster of notable artists who spent a day with the Picasso budding artists at Rosewood.
Hamilton 's mission is to upcycle material that has been thrown away to give it a new life with art. She founded "Once Upon My Pillow" using silk, cotton and cashmere material from a vintage wardrobe, turning customer's old shirts or tweed jackets into lovely elegant cushions.
Last week she worked with our children in the Picasso program to upcycle ugly Havana cigar boxes into adorable cherished adornment.
The Children's Art Foundation has had the support of many great artists. In the past, we had Toller Cranston, Merry Calderoni, Juan Ezcurdia and recently Richard Trumbull, Ezshwan Wilding, who inspired the children with their unique art techniques.
Children from Shanghai, Paris, London, New York, San Francisco, Berkeley, and Mexico have had a great time and left with the fond experience of San Miguel.
