As a Milwaukee artist whom have never left the state, I am finally getting a chance to grow and continue to be a student, learning in the French Quarter of the beautiful and one and only place of New Orleans. I want to show people that through art you can change the community, not only externally but internally. Through this opportunity I will not only be teaching but learning a whole new set of skills I could’ve only dreamed of having. I wanted to choice a destination that I would have to get out of my comfort zone to learn and experience new lessons everyday. This means so much to me because I let myself be held back by my own fears, and with the help of everyone around me I can grow as an artist and teacher and also student and help other amazing, talented people do the same! Thank you!!
