SVAD STATEMENT

When I survey my SVAD education I now see that, through the rigors of drawing/printmaking/art history, I was taught how to learn, work hard, and think critically about the world. These lessons eclipse the gains of memorizing facts or mastering of technical skills—these  are the lessons that provide the basis of long-term growth and success.
