The First Lady, Teens, and Design


First Lady Michelle Obama plans to celebrate the 2010 National Design Awards Wednesday, July 21, with a White House ceremony for the winners and finalists. In conjunction with that event, high school students have a great opportunity to participate in a free Teen Design Fair scheduled from 8:30 to 11 a.m., also July 21, at the Grand Salon of the nearby Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery. The teens will be able to meet one-on-one with leading designers in the fields of architecture, multimedia and graphic design, fashion, and industrial design. Moreover, to add icing to the cake (or egg-and-dart ornament to the woodwork), the man who needs no introduction, Tim Gunn of Project Runway, will give a keynote address.

That sounds like a wonderful opportunity for fine young artists!

I love the brushes, in fact I have a major weakness (addiction) to types of brushes. Good looking brushes not necessarily useful or that I would ever use. I got a beautiful bamboo set of brush vessels to put some of them in and just have them hanging around my desk.
These are such pretty inspirations.
Also luv the Obama teen contest project, just great for budding artists!
Have a happy weekend,
L.

Same with me. And this post offered an excuse to repeat the image from a different angle :)

That's so great! Nothing better than exposing kids to the arts.
