            1978-1981, Associate, Specialized Technology in the Program Area of Art

            Great choice on my part, attending The Art Institute of Phila!Of course when I graduated, I had the pleasure of having some classes that were discontinued, like silk screening, which I loved. My teachers were some of the best and the skills I learned helped pave the way for my becoming a freelance artist with some of the finest businesses.
