Meet the Art Vacuum Cleaner, Edward Harris

Creativity lives within me. Creativity is the fuel that keeps me going and art is the vehicle that allows me to share my creativity with the world. There is not a day or a moment when I'm not thinking about art, from the clothes I wear, to the pictures I take, or the pots I throw. Even when I don't try to think about it I do. I can't stop. Art is just a part of who I am.

ARTSHOP matters

I wish this experience could last longer. It honestly saddens me that it will be coming to an end soon because I had a great experience during ARTSHOP. I highly recommend it to other teens looking to gain a fun and engaging arts learning opportunity.
