Congratulations to Zamara Greenwood on a successful grant application!
Integrity Arts & Culture Association is pleased to announce the young artist, Zamara Greenwood, as one of this month's Mini-Grant recipients. The jurors were impressed with the quality of her work and present this award as encouragement toward her future creativity.
"I'm a 19-year-old, American artist who works primarily in mixed media. I've been passionate about creating art since I was a little girl, and this passion to create has grown over the years. I work primarily in traditional mixed-media and started experimenting in this discipline in 2015 during my junior year of high school. In 2016, I further developed my skills in this area with various projects for my AP Studio Art class. I specialize in illustration and portraits mainly but am no stranger to trying new things.
A goal of mine is to create art that addresses political, social and environmental issues, as well as educate and empower others. I am also interested in creating children's books. My grant funds will be used to purchase better quality art supplies, make art prints, and to take specific art courses to practice and develop my craft. My mother granted me the middle name Monet' because Claude Monet is her favorite artist. In that sense I guess you could say I was born to be an artist."
Integrity Arts & Culture Association wishes Zamara well in the continued development of her gifts.
