ArtSeed Statement: “I learned of ArtSeed from my friend Thomas Graves who is a volunteer and teacher there. Thomas told me of ArtSeed’s outreach to young artists and the opportunity to teach aspects of arts that are of interest to me. When I was young, I wished that I had access to someone who knew something about sequential arts. I relish the chance to inspire kids with lessons that I wish that I had had when I was growing up. ArtSeed is tailor-made to introduce emerging artists to practicing artists who inspire them.”
