“It’s easy to give up in this art form – you can take a piece so far and it breaks; sometimes you can bring it back, but most of the time you can’t. And you have to learn from that, stay positive and move forward.”

Our youth have been exposed to an array of different techniques, designs, types of art, as well as arts of other cultures. The children are showing appreciation and excitement for art that we have not seen in the past. That’s exciting.
