Janae Matthews, 2010 AOB Alumna- Children’s Illustrator & Graphic Designer
“There were so many things we learned about business during the program. Working as a freelance designer and artist as well as a designer in a traditional work environment, I learned how to handle things from a business perspective. Skills such as attention to detail and being intentional about decisions were also a few skills I cultivated and developed while being an apprentice at Arts on the Block. Being afraid of being challenged is okay but don’t give it power to stop you from accomplishing more than you thought you ever could. You could miss out on something great.”
Throughout spring, Arts on the Block will highlight the people, places and programs we love. Our goal is to #AOBHitRefresh on all of the relationships that make up our creative community. It’s spring, what better time to reconnect? Tell us your #AOBHitRefresh story!
