It was a fantastic event! I loved seeing all the art from the other students. My family came with me to see where my art was displayed. I had two pieces showing and what a wonderful feeling!

What an honor to meet such an inspirational artist and unexpected philosopher! Her work was spectacular and thought provoking, as was her wisdom and experience. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

I enjoyed Carlos' informative powerpoint and his great personality. I really liked his use of color in his screen printings.

I loved the contrast of the two artists. Each had a voice for their own style, which was vey impressive. I will be looking for their work for sale in the near future, whether it be in galleries or film, I know they will succeed.

The stories of the three cousins is quite interesting, and they are very talented artists to boot. I'd definitely recommend checking it out.
