My classmate interview this week was with Marie Mendez. Marie is from close by and attended Wilson High School. She is a junior at CSULB and enjoys playing soccer with her friends. Marie says that she wishes she had taken this class sooner because it has rekindled her passion for artwork. She knew a great art scene existed in Long Beach, but never made the move to become involved. She said that each week she looks forward to checking out the galleries and on her free time she has committed to exploring more of Long Beaches galleries her self! Keep up the great work Marie!
