Rooted and BloomingLive Item
Catherine Tilly's Rooted and Blooming is designed to celebrate the work that God is doing through City on a Hill with kids and families. I invite you to celebrate with me-the creativity of this generation of students and the power that visual art brings to storytelling. As we find ourselves on what seems at times like a very uncertain journey, we remain rooted in what is certain-that God does have a plan for us! The growing and blooming images in this piece come directly from student artwork, created with me during an August art session here in Milwaukee.
