First Friday - March 2016 March 07 2016, 0 Comments

For our March First Friday, we exhibited Stuffie Portraits – artwork done by the students at Missoula Community School. Each child had drawn an individual portrait of a special or favorite stuffed animal! A photo accompanies each drawing, showing the great resemblance and skill of the students' work. 

This exhibit was created with the help of guest artist Laura Sawaya. While working with Laura, the students explored color, shape, and creative thinking. The students' hard work definitely paid off as their artwork shows just how hard they all worked to capture the stuffed animal's look and feel.

"It only took minutes after I entered La Stella Blu before a child ran to me and rushed me over to show their artwork hanging. Such a proud moment!" -Missoula Community School

We had a great time welcoming all of the students, teachers, and families to our store, and can't thank them enough for joining us in celebrating the students of Missoula Community School. It's fantastic to have a community that comes together to celebrate children's creativity and imagination!

The artwork will be up for a bit longer, so stop in to see it before it's gone!
