Remember this kid?

Bella was one of Princess Awesome’s original models - she was only four years old then, but already one seriously awesome princess.

This month, Bella traveled to the Maryland State Capitol in Annapolis to share her winning poem with First Lady Yumi Hogan at the Student Art Exhibition. We are so proud to reprint it here! Congratulations, Bella!

Creativity is:

When you make something in art
That you created
Art
Imagination

We find it on television
Everywhere

It is to create songs
And dances
Making a home for my cats

It is quiet
Thinking and a blown mind
Concentrating

It is every color
It is everything
You have fun

Creating is amazing

Bella S., Grade 2

About the Maryland Student Art Exhibition: In Spring and Fall, students from more than 20 Maryland school systems submit artwork as part of the First Lady Yumi Hogan’s Student Art Exhibition, and a winner is chosen at the elementary, middle, and high school levels though a jury process. The First Lady, who is an adjunct professor at Maryland Institute College of Art and herself an accomplished artist, has been an active supporter of the arts community and advocate for arts programs in schools across Maryland. The exhibition is supported by the Maryland State Department of Education’s Fine Arts Office and the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC).

I Built That in a Dress

I ended up (like so many other folks) doing some home improvement, and I found the perfect piece of clothing for all my projects - my Princess Awesome super twirler dresses! They’re super comfortable, light and airy, make me feel confident, and the huge, deep pockets hold all my tools and hardware.
