Annissa Brestel, 14 Favorite thing about the school: Art classes at school always have a lot of rules but here there aren’t rules, we just get to be creative and that’s fun. Photography and abstract art are my favorites.
If you’re interested in supporting the work of Oklahoma City Girls Art School, attend their Fundraiser & Art Exhibition from 6-8 p.m. April 12 at their campus at 706 W. Sheridan Ave., Ste. C. Enjoy food, music and activities for all ages while browsing art and talking to students.
Future plans with art: I want to go into psychology but I think photography will always be part of my life now.
Jaqueline Fuentes, 14 Favorite thing about the school: Spending time with my friends and drawing. Drawing is definitely my favorite thing we do here.
Magdalena Escobedo, 13 Favorite thing about the school: Meeting the other artists. It’s cool to learn from different people and art even shows you things about different parts of the world.
Future plans with art: I do think I will pursue a career in art later on. I always liked art but I don’t think I would have actually been able to do it as a career without the school.
Future plans with art: I don’t know that I would ever do art for a living, but I know I want to be a vet and if I go into something like that I will always use art as a way to relax and release my stress.
