The Artist Within
"I believe art isn't just hanging on the walls—it is all around you in everyday life," says The Artist Within founder Thomas Cleveland. This affinity for art was established when Cleveland was only 5, and it has grown as he has garnered various awards and done commissioned work for Nickelodeon and Coca-Cola. Cleveland helps students develop their own artistic style as they learn pastel-painting techniques in summer camp or use mixed media to illustrate their disdain for yard work.
