We are so PROUD of our YOUNGEST SUPPORTERS!! Wow!! We can not say enough good things about the 2012 Young Artists Program (www.YoungArtistsProgram.org) and, in particular, the beautiful art we received from children everywhere. This was our first year launching the Young Artists Program and we can confirm that it was a huge success. The results have been amazing and this is just the beginning!
The artwork, done by 2-8 year olds from all around the world, was collected over several months. This was not a competition but a collaborative project. EVERY work art is not only featured in our on-line gallery (view the gallery here) but has been included a very special edition book (preview the book here) where it will continue to live and be enjoyed for years to come. The book is designed to appeal to both young and old by offering a collection of classic nursery rhymes and stories combined with beautiful art (not to mention a few key facts on cord blood tactifully placed throughout). Children will love looking at their art in a REAL BOOK while hearing the rhymes and stories read aloud by parents, grandparents, friends and family. Likewise, adults will be surprised to learn about how cord blood is being used and the variety of options available for saving it at birth.
CREATE, GIVE, SHARE
This year’s theme was “Create, Give, Share.” It is more than just a theme to us; it is a philosophy and approach which has driven the whole program. In that spirit, we encourage you to buy a copy of this beautiful book so that you can continue to GIVE and SHARE this wonderful gift of CREATIVITY and information with others. Click HERE to preview the book and order your copy today. All artwork featured is also available on tshirts, mugs, etc. in our store, click here.
Thank you to all of the children and their families who have made the program come to life!!! We hope you will join again next year for the next Young Artists Program! See you then (and don’t forget to invite your friends. . . it will always be FREE to participate!).
