Collage project depicting leadership qualities seeks artists

Creative Children for Charity, a Sammamish-based student arts program, is seeking artists to help create a collage displaying qualities of leadership.

The project, which the arts and social improvement group is calling “40 Story’s” [sic], is asking young artists to complete 40 oil paintings, each showcasing a different leadership quality. The paintings will come together to create a collage when finished. An unveiling ceremony is planned for April.

“We’re … hoping to inspire more leadership in youth,” marketing lead and Bellevue student Catalina Raggi said. “Also, a lot of people think today’s youth doesn’t have leadership ability and we want to show that we do.”

The group, also known as 3C, distributed canvases and paints to interested artists at Daniel Smith Art Supplies of Bellevue on Feb. 16. However, the group still needs more artists, Raggi said.

The goal of 3C is to “inspire one million kids and teens to donate their time and talent for a social cause,” by connecting artistic talent to area nonprofits.

Young artists interested in contributing to “40 Story’s” can arrange a value assignment and supply pickup by emailing More information on Creative Children for Charity can be found at
