At the age of 22 Amanda Gorman became the youngest known poet to speak at a presidential inauguration. Her words of unity and reconciliation inspired a nation. Her work focuses on issues of oppression, race, and feminism. Raised by a single mother in Los Angeles, Amanda credits music and oration with helping her to overcome a speech impediment that hindered her from giving voice to her words. Amanda has said that she plans to run for president herself in 2036.
This is a fantastic modern spin on the vintage paint-by-number kit. I love that the backgrounds are printed-in as this adds a depth and sophistication unmatched in the early kits. Makes a terrific gift.
This paint-by-number kit features the first ever National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman, with a yellow sunflower in her hair. The pre-printed, full-color background is a solid green.
Completing the painting can take between 3-5 hours.
