I couldn't wait to share this big news in our house!
Matisse found out that she won the 2017 Youth Art Month Flag Design.
I did not have enough time to dedicate with my classes at school to enter for this competition so I decided to talk to Matisse, my daughter about this competition this year. she was excited to represent out beautiful state. She focused on the cities, suburban, and rural areas of the state. You can't do an image of Minnesota without including a lake. Minnesota is known for it's '10,000' lakes. She chose to add the text digitally. This girl spent no less than 5 hours creating this amazing work. She was very excited to have been selected.
