“I also made great memories with new friends that I still keep in contact with.”


“During this month-long experience, I learned to never be afraid to try something different because art can be anything I want it to be.  I also learned to always let my artwork reflect who I am and what I believe.  I am so thankful for this wonderful experience.”
