What is The Sustainable Souls Project?
The Sustainable Souls Project is a monthly artist collaboration inspired by sustainability issues, concerns, ideas, and thoughts. Each month, we will pick a sustainability topic and create awareness through art, using the monthly theme as inspiration. Projects may include art journaling, mixed media, assemblage and more.
The idea is to create awareness around Sustainability through art, one paint stroke at a time!
We hope to educate, entertain, and share pretty things for both humans and the earth.
How was The Sustainable Souls Project born?
The Sustainable Souls Project evolved from the yearly discovery of a single word. Each year, I choose a word to define my hopes, focus, and desires for the next 365 days. Because the earth is in dire need of help and I want to leave a legacy for my children and their children to inherit, I thought it was time to focus on Sustainability.
But I wanted to make 2017 different. I wanted to include others in my word, since Sustainability cannot be done alone. Yes, every small action helps, but it's the combination of hundreds of small acts that make a difference.
What can you expect each month?
Each month, the wonderfully talented artists who are listed on the right side of the blog will share their inspiration behind the month's theme. To be honest, I'm not sure what we will see, but I am positive it will be incredibly inspirational, super creative, and fun!
We will also have Guest Artists throughout the year, accompanied by Junior Artists from time to time. If everything goes as planned, we will also be joined by Middle School and High School students who will help share their ideas on Sustainability.
If would like to create with us this year, please feel free to use our monthly theme as inspiration. We would love to see what you create!
