This makes my heart burst! Janus sponsors a Student Art Buying Program to help bring art into the schools and the lives of Colorado students. This year, they hosted more than 90 students from 24 Colorado schools. Each participating school elects student representatives to come to the Festival and purchase art from professional artists. The students have been learning about art appreciation and art buying in their classrooms. Each school was given a $500 budget to select a piece or pieces that speak to them. I am incredibly incredibly honored that these students, from Cory Elementary School, selected one of my pieces to be taken back to their school and put on display.
