Rita Hernandez with Live On Air With Rita & Inspiration 4 Life Partnered with the awesome Marcie Ann Anguiano, Founder of Mission Crafts Chandlery for this amazing and inspiring Youth Candle Making Workshop. Marcie is a true inspiration to our communities of San Antonio. She has an amazing story and you can definitely check out past Interviews we have had with her on our website. Please make sure to show her support and Follow her Social Media and check out her other upcoming classes!

As you all know, Inspiration 4 Life has been working with our youth since 2005 and this class was inspired by my Jazzy. I shared with Marcie, the struggles my Jazzy was dealing with her Senior year with stress and anxiety. I wanted to do something to help encourage our Youth, that it is ok, to be creative in any way to help with their tough situations. Jazzy’s way of helping herself was finding the right candles with the perfect scents to help her get through her day. This is where Marcie and I put our heads together and the rest is history!

Our Youth Media Program focuses on Mental Health Awareness to help with stress, anxiety, depression and more through expression in Media, Broadcasting, Magazines, Documentaries and Film. We are here to bring inspiration to our Youth and have been providing these Media services since 2009.

Our Partnership with Mission Crafts Chandlery was the perfect inspiration for our Youth. Making these candles and having them choose their own scents to get through their stressful days, was truly amazing. We are also thankful to Robin Coronado with Foxy Coronado for working with our parents and educating them on how to destress in stressful situations. They also received their very own essential oil kit.

Thank you to our parents for bring your children and staying with us for the workshop. Thank you Southside Craft Soda for providing your amazing and tasty sodas! They were delicious! Also thank you for the Pizza! Inspiration 4 Life is also thankful to all of our Sponsors that we work with all year long. We were able to put together our Youth Media tote bags from Whataburger and items from Peter Piper Pizza, Solar Power sun glasses, Styling with J Marie Boutique, Art by Blas and Rita, San Antonio Mission National Park and Inspiration 4 Life. Also thank you Chavez with Love It Stefunny for donating a reading book as a prize for the raffle drawings.

Stay tuned for the next class in July and many more to come for our Youth!!! I hope you enjoy our video of our wonderful experience in this amazing Partnership. Thank you! ~Rita Hernandez, Founder of Inspiration 4 Life

Blas Hernandez Jr., born on September 23, 1965, and raised in San Antonio, Texas picked up his first paintbrush and put it on canvas in 5th grade and hasn’t stopped since. It was then, at 10 years old, he realized that being an Artist got him a lot of recognition and respect from his school, family, and friends.

Totally did not expect this!!! One of my vendor friends messaged me and said she just voted for our Art by Blas and Rita Gallery!!! I was surprised and so honored to be in the presence of some super cool Art Galleries in SA. I know we won't compete against these well known Art Galleries but once again, we are just honored to be in your presence! Lol. We are simply a small Art Studio & Gallery but my husband Blas Hernandez Jr. and I have been making an impact in the Art world since 2000. Of course he has been painting since was 5 years old and has been recognized as one of San Antonio's Local Artists and he inspired me 21 years ago to paint my first piece of Artwork. He is a true inspiration in my eyes and I know to many others. I am truly honored that we have our Studio/Gallery/Boutique located in Southtown at 716 S. Alamo. Every month we Feature different Artists and open up our Media, Broadcasting & Magazines Organization to help be a Voice to Local Artists of SA. We even Feature Artists on our Inspiration 4 Life Radio Station, Live On Air With Rita Radio & FB Live Shows and even have a Magazine dedicated specifically to Artists in SA, Artists Expressions Magazine and recognize Artists that give back as Local Heroes in our Inspiration 4 Life Magazine. We even Feature our youth in their own Magazine, Live On Air In SA Magazine. If we do get your Vote, thank you in advanced but all we mainly ask is for you to come by to visit with us! Come by for our 1st Friday Art Walk & Shop in Southtown, December 3rd, 716 S. Alamo from 5-9pm. Thank you everyone!!! Much Love to All ~Rita
