The Joy of Art

The best part about creating any type of art is getting to admire your finished masterpiece. The feeling of accomplishment you get when you look at the artwork you put time and effort into is amazing. But, for me, there's one thing better than the feeling I get from doing art. Seeing students of all abilities react to their creations is incredible! This is why I volunteer with Miss.Gabi! I love watching others realize how capable they are of doing something that may seem slightly out of their reach. It's astonishing to see students who have trouble expressing themselves verbally using art as a form of expression. I can't begin to describe how much volunteering at the studio has impacted me. I never thought that I'd be able to accomplish what I'm accomplishing at the studio. And the connection I feel to everyone we teach is amazing. Everyday, I prove that I am capable of things people said I'd never be able to do. And at the same time I'm watching students do the same! All I can say is that I'm extremely grateful to Gabi, her other assistants, and all of the students we work with!
