Wooden Box - Closed

Scott Bogdahn

“Art makes me happy today. Sometimes, I think about the bad stuff. Art makes me happy looking at it, looking at sculpture. My mother was into art. She used to build with clay, the pottery. She made doll house furniture. She mixed paint with water, puts it on a plate and she would paint with it. I used to paint on plates. I took pictures too. I’d like to do more with wood.”

Kendra Sanborn

“I’ve been making art a really long time, since I was 11 years old. I find it interesting. I like painting with acrylics and using colored pencil, oil pastels, and charcoal. I love it. It makes me feel really good. It makes me feel like I’m in a different place. I like Vincent Van Gough because his artwork is like my artwork with logs of color and abstract. I like Frida Khalo because she transforms people into animals.”

Journey

Regina Whiteside

“Art makes me feel good when I don’t have anything else to do. I like looking at other people’s art because it helps me choose what I would like to do. I really like making cards with collage pieces. I like to figure out when it has just enough pieces on it. When the pizzazz is enough - I know it is finished!”
