Painting

Painting on canvas is the most popular art form in our studio, and is also the most challenging. Filling a blank canvas can be a daunting task and our art teacher holds the students to a high standard. The goal is for the painting to reveal each student’s individuality and soul, regardless of her level of traditional “artistic  ability.” Over time, resistance to revealing themselves eases and they embrace the challenge of expressing their emotions, personalities and perceptions through painting.

  • My Imagination

    by Dalisa Saldana

    Going away with you
    is like going to the moon
    and coming back.

    It's like sitting
    on the beach and
    listening to the waves.

    It's like going to China
    and exploring
    other cultures.

    You are my imagination
    where everything
    is perfect,
    colorful, and happy.
