PICASSO'S
BOUQUET OF PEACE

RAINBOW CLUB'S
RAINBOW OF PEACE

When Brittany shared the story about her grandmother's 'Bouquet of Peace' print, I knew we had finally found the right direction for our logo. Watch how the design transformed into our logo, a 'Rainbow of Peace' - keeping our inspiration at the core.
-Ms. Kelly

Each flower represents different values and characteristics:

Poppy: respect, dreams, remembrance

Cone: strength, health, healing

Dandelion: youth, joy, determination, hope

Fern (Koru): growth, harmony, new beginnings

Pincushion: love, purity, peace, power

Tulip: forgiveness, rebirth, charity, confidence

A print of Picasso’s ‘Bouquet of Peace’ was gifted to my grandmother by her students in 1981. She was a French teacher in New York for decades, and I recently learned she taught internationally through her summers- I guess the apple didn’t fall far.

 

After mulling through different rainbows and logo ideas, I had an idea while half-asleep to design a logo inspired by this art, which has adorned my homes for so long. Only then did I learn the title and meaning behind the work and it made all the more sense.

Ms. Kelly put a new spin on it and thus we have our Rainbow of Peace, where each flower represents unique people and wouldn’t be complete without the other.

GENERATIONS
OF EDUCATORS

We both come from a long line of educators. If you asked, I'd say I was first inspired to be a teacher by my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Nguyen. She showed me the kind of teacher I would aspire to be. But cellularly, as so many other educators out there, I learned from women in my family. We both did. We are forever grateful to those who showed us and continue to show us the way.
