Student Insights: June by Charles Burchfield By Caitlin Walsh, ‘19

“I find myself at peace when I draw, and when I see others finding their own personal way of finding that same peace. That is why I resonated so greatly with June. I am mesmerized by Charles Birchfield’s mark making, and found myself in a slight trance by June in Zoellner that day when we were given time to explore.”

Student Insights: Trees by Menashe Kadishman
By Christine Kreschollek, AAD Technology & Communications Coordinator
