Marvin Risen

Talk about a nice student and determined. Marvin and I stayed after school to practice contour drawing and he got it. Marvin returned after his graduation from the Art Institute of Houston to speak to my classes. It was such a PROUD moment to see his accomplishments. That was the one thing that I ask of my students was to come back to speak to my classes of their experiences beyond high school and they did constantly. It was wonderful.
