Artist Statement

In my opinion, art is a resource that can help many students communicate in creative ways. It’s an expressive outlet that can give a sense of accomplishment and pride, due to the dedication, application of creativity, and the imagination that is used by the student. It is also significant to education for many reasons. It allows the student to think differently, be innovative, collaborate with others, become flexible, and adapt to various situations; all essential skills for life, especially for students in the 21st Century.
