REFLECTIONS FROM THOSE FOR WHOM THIS PROGRAM HAS HAD A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT:
“From working with Amy Pickett I learned more about autism than [I had previously known]. The children's behavior varied because each child had different social cues he/she responded to while others didn't understand or would need a different cue. Just like other people, the autistic students were outgoing, shy, etc. but they had different approaches to communicating with people. I didn't see any disability but great ability with observing and occasionally talking to them. It also made me think that I must take locations into consideration when practicing art therapy.” - Hannah Moy
“All of the events had things that could teach me about leadership, but they all had something to teach about finances or entrepreneurship too. The mission trip and the Artsphere job taught me about what it takes financially, resource wise, and what it takes in manpower, as a lot goes into these things to even make them function.” - Juliana Leventhal
“Dan Gneiding… started out working for Anthropology and then Urban Outfitters, designing logos and labels for the companies. He talked about how Urban Outfitters does not have a set logo, so he was allowed a lot of creativity to come up with new ways of designing for their products. He later designed both the fonts “Ribbon” and “Dude” which are featured on the website losttype.com. He showed us how he makes a lot of variations of his fonts so that people can find just what they need for their project. He also showed us a video that was made as a promotion for his font “Dude”, which was stop animation of a sign painter painting the various letters to highlight the differences in the font families he had made. This was a cool look into the different ways that graphic design and illustration can be used, and I liked learning about his job at Urban Outfitters, because it was actually a studio setting for illustrators/graphic designers. I think I would enjoy working in that kind of setting.” - Katie Brubaker
