Berit Sandvig Berit Sandvig “My time at ArtSeed has been very eventful in the most wonderful of ways. I am constantly inspired by the passion that the ArtSeed community holds for their constituents and their community. There is a particular arsenal of happiness on hand with the people involved in ArtSeed’s events and activities. I, in particular, was very involved with the work that took place at the Booker T. Washington Community Service Center. I loved that there was always a fun learning dynamic and the students were eager to learn. Especially when the COVID-19 Pandemic hit, ArtSeed was unfazed! I was completely amazed by the team’s bright spirits. This was such a vital opportunity to see that value of arts education and how it can make a difference in people’s lives. I cherish it!” Read more.
Betzabe Moreno González (Betzy) “Participating in the ArtSeed’s Art-a-thon was one of the most gratifying collaborative experiences. Teaching drawing from a screen via Zoom to share with others my love for drawing was a special memory I’ll always treasure in my life. Thank you, ArtSeed for letting me be a part of the Art-a-thon, 2020!” Read more.
Saloni Sharma is a 16-year-old high school graduate and office administration trainee at Treasure Island Job Corps Center. She was born and raised in Nepal and immigrated when she was 8 years old. She has been drawing and making art for as long as she can remember. Because of the transitions into new settings with a new culture and new guardians, art served as an outlet for self-expression, as well as a coping mechanism for the lack of serenity. Being an artist apprentice at ArtSeed through The California Lawyers for The Arts has assisted her in acquiring the credence needed to fully grasp her capabilities as a young professional, wanting to create her own business, and ready to emancipate her into the corporate world and network with other professional individuals.
