The Future Artisans of Croix des Bouquets

There is a large artisan center in the heart of Croix des Bouquets and it is the destination of many a tourist. Shop after shop of metal workers and painters create wonderful imaginative pieces interpreting their views of Haitian life.
Their signs are even works of art.

Their works are proudly displayed.

The artists hammer out their intricate designs…

Painters sometimes decorate the pieces.

These three dimensional musicians were left unpainted.

Today, we are excited to be searching for young artistic talent in the area. Up to 20 schools are being asked to take part in an exciting talent search with fantastic prizes being awarded. Competitors are being encouraged to submit pieces from many disciplines: cartography, woodworking, photography and more. Much work has been put into this effort and we hope to update you about our finalists in March!
