"I was so happy to be surrounded by people who had very similar mentalities about art and life. Since I don't go to an art high school, I never get to spend time with people who are as interested in art as me, so I was grateful to have met these students."

"I woke up every morning excited to be here. I learned a lot and became a more confident artist."
