“I had a great summer being part of Studio in the City! I got to work with a talented group of artists to create works of art that will last and brighten the City. I also learned plenty of new art skills, I got to paint on a larger scale and I learned to brainstorm ideas to bring joy to the community. I had lots of fun from this amazing opportunity!”
