Madison found out she loves abstract art by Ms. Brotzman’s lessons on it. “I love using colored pencil for abstract art since they blend nicely,” says Madison.

Riley just lets his imagination go in art, “Doing whatever I want is my favorite because my imagination is free.” The medium he prefers most is oil pastels because they’re smooth.
