"I began taking classes at Palette Art Studio in 2014. Throughout the years, my art style has developed into an extravaganza of rough mark-making and experimental failure-turned-successes. I hope to take the discoveries and skills I gained through my years at Palette Art Studio, and apply them towards designing new concepts when I continue my education at the Rhode Island School of Design."
Michael Earle is a senior who attends Guilford High School in the mornings and the Educational Center for the Arts in the afternoons. In the fall, Michael will study architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island. He is most interested in the intersection of architecture and art and will likely pursue a career in design. Michael is appreciative of the technical and conceptual skills that he has learned while attending Palette Art Studio and expects the continuation of the acquisition of artistic knowledge to be a lifelong journey.
"My name is Veronica Egas and I’m 18 years old. I plan on taking a gap year to raise money for my college tuition and to focus on video/ painting commissions as well as internships. After the gap year I will be attending Rhode Island School of Design’s film, animation, and video program as an undergraduate student. I hope to combine my drawing and painting knowledge with my film projects by starting a film production studio or pursuing a storyboard artist career. "
"I started taking classes at Palette Art Studio when I was 11, and since then, painting has been my creative outlet and my passion. It is sad to see this portion of my life coming to a close, but I hope to continue painting as a hobby in the future because it provides me with so much joy."
