Maple Grove students' art used to create national fundraiser

Dreaming Zebra® is pleased to announce our new partnership with World Class Flowers, a unique campaign to fund art and music supplies through the sales of flower bouquets.

Five sixth-grade students at Maple Grove School will see their still-life paintings on display in national retail stores soon. We invited Maple Grove sixth-graders to create still-life paintings of flower arrangements under the guidance of art teacher Cassondra Tinsley. Students studied still-life paintings and looked at real flower bouquets, then designed their own floral arrangements in vases. Each sixth grader in Ms. Tinsley’s art class created an original painting, and their artworks were sent to World Class Flowers for consideration.

Lead floral designer Rob DeBellis used the children's artwork as inspiration to create real bouquets, and selected five paintings to include on the bouquet tags. The five sixth graders whose art was selected to be on the tags are Olivia Aiello, Rebecca Andueza, Nathaniel Gustafson, Julionna Hernandez and Alana Pitts. Art students whose paintings were used as inspiration for bouquets include Kadon Collins, Donovan DeGrande, Easton Lane, Daniel Leontiy, Eliana Sayenko and Marcus Webber.




World Class Flowers introduced Dreaming Zebra® Bouquets at the 2015 International Floriculture Expo in Chicago to enthusiastic attendees. The Expo is the leading trade show and educational program for mass market retailers, retail florists, designers, garden centers and nurseries, event floral designers and other retailers of floral and foliage products. This is where the floral industry meets and grows.
