EXHIBITION & ALUMNI GATHERING
Participation in CAP has inspired me to revisit my old sketch book. It has reminded me how short life is, and how important it is to make your own dreams come true. When you spend seven months encouraging a young person to do just that, at some point you scratch your head and say ” oh yeah” that IS a good idea!! To think of myself as a master of my craft has been a new concept, one that fills me with pride and a drive to share my experiences in other teaching opportunities as my career continues to unfold.
