    Why I Study Art:
     
    "Art has become so much a part of me that I can see it everywhere from billboards and paintings to flower petals and tree leaves. I feel a sense of connection, purpose, and wholeness when I am sketching and painting..." Alex P.
     
    "As a young artist, I am constantly looking forward to observe, and learn from the world around me. I am looking for new experiences, and  new opportunities to try skills I've never practiced before." Arielle T.
