To me art is an escape, from school, sports, responsibility, and people. I’ve been taking ceramics since my freshman year and have typically been the only boy in my class, this I enjoy. I enjoy being able to sit down and just work, free from the object of constant conversation. Having the opportunity to now receive AP credits and academic recognition for the countless hours spent fully engaged within my craft is long awaited and happily welcomed. I encourage anyone and everyone to indulge themselves in art to some capacity, it is my belief that art has something to offer every living being regardless of age, belief, or ability.
