My time at PCA&D has given me the opportunity to grow, not only as an artist, but as a person. The welcoming environment gave me the motivation to explore new techniques and concepts in my art, as well as expand into an ever-growing and learning individual. I really feel like I learned artistic skills that will last me a lifetime and gained a community that will as well.
