"Each piece was inspired by Bloom itself - the message, theme, colors, etc. "Bloom where you are planted" - don't just live somewhere, plant yourself in your community and thrive. The dandelion shows us - how we can go and live anywhere, are constantly moving, and we don't only grow, but become a "beautiful flower.""

Dandelion

Amelia M.
Fort Worth, TX

"This is a 35 mm film picture that I took on my Pentax K1000. My family and I were in the middle of a PCS to Texas after my dad's orders to Italy were changed. I was still grieving not getting to go to Italy and I took this picture as a reminder to bloom where I am planted. "

Creation of Bloom

Anna V.

"This piece is exploring nature through a re-creation of the 'Creation of Adam' by Michelangelo and is part of a portfolio using a specific piece of fabric. When I fist started this piece, it unfortunately got lost when my phone stopped working, so I recreated on paper and have seen a growth in both my art and my style." (Picture taken by Art teacher).

Hold my Hand Through Life

Anna V.

"This piece is exploring the progression of life and relationships, and is apart of my portfolio of pieces using a specific piece of fabric." (Picture taken by Art teacher).

Dente di Leone

Sophia S.
Germany

"This is a painting I painted last fall, when the weather started getting cooler and there weren't as many flowers blooming anymore. I wanted to paint something that reminded me of the warmer, brighter months. While dandelions aren't the most colorful flowers, I felt as if painting one that is colorful captured the cheerful feeling that I feel during the time of year they bloom."

An Odyssey Through Green Pastures

Matthew A.
Texas

"Much like that seasonal gust, PCS season can come suddenly. From those familiar fields all the way to new locations, it can be difficult to adapt and grow in these environments. Whether you are just landing in a new field or have already rooted yourselves, know that your struggles and growth are all progress in building this new meadow. Take pride in your progress!"

A Burning Bloom

Anna V.
Germany

"Every artist is passionate about their art, it burning throughout each piece. Military kids are the same... they have a passion for whatever activity, sport, or art they do. It drives them to work their hardest to be good at it. Military kids burn the brightest when they do something they love. Like stars we shine in the sky, and like a flower we bloom with the rise of the sun."

Dream High, Dream Far, Aim for the Stars

Matthew A.
Texas

"Sometimes, your goals may seem as far as the stars. Never forget distance and time are relative, but what you cherish now is eternal. "
