ShareUcare & Lighthouse 2014

Wee Picasso has been busy preparing her 6 foot lighthouse for display this summer. She was selected from many applicants to paint one.

She has recently been involved with the #stopcyberbullying movement with Parry Aftab and her team at WiredTrust. Wee Picasso asked all the students in her school to make a Positive Post it note. We were amazed at the results and felt we should share them online - so we started a new project "ShareUcare".
Post it notes from our new friend Susan McLean at Cyber Safety Solutions in Australia She can reveal the entire lighthouse until June - the post it notes will be "pasted" into the image - here is a sneak peek of the work in progress:

Wee Lighthouse 2014

Wee Picasso has been chosen to participate in a creative art event for 2014 Sesquicentennial celebrations on PEI. Lighthouse2014 has chosen 20 artists to add their creative flair to a magnificent 6ft lighthouse sculpture. These will be displayed in the City of Summerside during the summer of 2014. Wee Picasso's lighthouse will be sponsored by Vector Aerospace which is a provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services for fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft operators around the globe. Which is really exciting for any 7 year old! I see a big interest in helicopters and airplanes coming soon. Wee Picasso's friends Allan & Parry at Wired Trust will be providing a mini studio for her lighthouse and providing support in supplies and with the Teenangels will be adding their "handiwork" to the design. Lighthouse 2014 will be hosting a gala event in June - until then we will only be sharing small details of the work in progress. Needless to say - Wee Picasso is excited to participate in this BIG project and to add her small part to the 2014 party!

The Universe

Unbeknownst to me - Wee Picasso has an understanding of our Galaxy and the Universe. 

I must say the Universe looks really funky!


I did not know stuff at age seven.

Stop, Block & Tell #stopcyberbullying

Our friend Parry Aftab was looking for some artwork. Stop, Block and Tell is the motto she is teaching Canadian students in regards to online safety. Wee Picasso and I designed this concept (she has attended a summit on this topic and a meeting with our local gov't officials.) then she executed it in paint. She choose the mean words to write under the "block" section.
