The great Georgia O’Keeffe once observed that “to create one’s own world in any art takes courage.” And as an educator, I am consistently humbled, awed and inspired by the poise, talent, humor and originality my students possess. Please take this opportunity to check out this expansive photo slideshow and appreciate some incredible, inspirational images from the next generation of artists and creative thinkers.
