These sessions make my heart sing—loud and clear!! I, who dropped art class as soon as I was allowed to during middle school, now feel there’s lots of hope for the artsy side of my persona to show, and that is directly because of the enriching teaching being done by METAMORPHOSIS Art and Enrichment facilitators Selena and Jean! Thank you!
