What They're Saying

"When you think of paintings, you think of a one-dimensional image, on canvas. Now, being at Museum School, if you take time and look closely enough, the art is no longer flat, but three dimensional. You can step inside and have the picture come to life and tell a story. Now, whether or not I am in or at a museum, I study things to get a better understanding of them. I think a museum is a great place to go to for fun or to learn because of the huge variety. A museum is also a place for your imagination to run wild, by being part of the scene when you look deeply. I am grateful for Museum School to open new doors of looking for me."
