December 8: Radiant Jasmin Features
Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery, now at its new location at 541 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square Cambridge, Massachusetts with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On December 8, we welcome back Radiant Jasmin to the podium.
Radiant Jasmin is a multi-media dancer, jeweler, painter, poet and singer/songwriter. Like a chef, she selects each art ingredient to complement and bring out the best in the others. She studied fine jewelry making at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the North Bennet Street School and midwifery at Maternidad Laluz in El Paso, TX.
Exhibits and performances include: The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The Museum of the National Center of African American Artists, The Arsenal Center for the Arts and the Artists Foundation.
Radiant Jasmin teaches performance and visual art to children and adults using fun ways to link art with preventative healthcare, parenting skills, literacy, math and social studies for a balanced educational experience and healing from trauma.
In her Music and Poetry creation, she is a channel. Songs and poems come to her while asleep, cooking and painting. They always mirror her values of self-love, happiness and self-reflection. She mixes funk, soul, jazz, hip-hop, gospel, Indian music and more. Like a chef, she selects each art ingredient to complement and bring out the best in the others. She will release her first spoken word poetry and music CD, Breaking It Down, towards the end of 2014.
Radiant Jasmin is married to writer Haji Shearer, they live in the Boston area and are parents of a son and daughter who are now in their early 20’s. Sharing these gifts she’s been given is her contribution to uplifting the world.
