“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!” – Berit
