Personal Mission Statement
My hope is that VLCS students will be empowered to make creative choices and build self-esteem through visual art enrichment.
"Arts education fosters bright, creative, and socially engaged students who will grow up to be our next leaders, parents, teachers, artists, and engineers. Their innovative ideas will shape industries; their creative thinking will find out-of-the-box solutions for a global society, and will provide students with a way to understand themselves, and have a sense of belonging." - Jane Chu, National Endowment for the Arts
