"I learned how to use bookmaking as a way to display writing." -Teacher, 5 years

"I loved being a students again! It was really fun being creative and pushing myself out of my comfort zone! This class was a great opportunity to explore new art mediums (bookmaking) and understand better the frustration my students may feel when they are struggling to master a new task (pinhole photography). I will definitely incorporate what I learned into my classroom." - Teacher, 10 years

"The process game me new information and challenged me as well as pushed my interests in other unexpected areas." - Toni Lynn P., Art Teacher, 1 year
