Mrs. Watts, PA Distance Art teacher stated, “Dakota’s work continues to show her dedication to the arts and to furthering her abilities. I have found her to be an asset to any collaborative situation in the classroom. She always brings her best effort and positive attitude! She is currently learning about art through a PA Distance independent study with various art media and also through the CMOA Art Connections Program. Her work will be exhibited in the Spring! I am so very proud of her to have made the journey from just liking art to embracing it as a true fine artist! The sky’s the limit for her ideas and abilities! She has so much creativity and inspiration. Her extensive body of work continues to amaze me! I am just so happy to have been able to be part of her amazing journey!”
