What David Has to Say About His Work

"Many people have no idea what makes up their identity. Nationality is a part of our identities that is easily discovered because it’s something that we are born with. However, nationality is just one thin layer, and it’s our duty to keep looking for the other parts of our identity.  Knowing or having a general idea of personal identity is important because identity is what makes everyone unique, it is what sets us apart from everyone else. Everyone has to be proud of who they are."

Mass Art Youth Program
 
Everett High School Senior and serious art student Angel Campos recently attended the Mass Art Youth Program's winter Portfolio Development, an in-depth weekend intensive which provides students in grade 9 through 12 with concepts, materials and processes through which they develop the inventive and expressive portions of their artistic portfolio.  This opportunity was made possible through a scholarship, one of several scholarship spots obtained by newly appointed K-12 Art Coordinator Caroline A. DiCicco, as she builds a partnership between EPS and the college.  Pictured below is one of Angel’s works, a dynamic and expressive piece, created during a session focusing on visual thinking.  This spring, Angel will attend an Animation course.
