Katie Smith

At PCA&D I learned how to collaborate and take direction from others while still being able to put my personal touch on it. In an office type of environment, I never work on projects alone and I'm always receiving feedback from coworkers. PCA&D taught me how to work, take direction and respond to direction with great art work.

Moving away from home was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Pushing my comfort zone and exploring what else is out there in the world. Moving to a new city has challenged myself to grow and adapt. I have learned a lot about myself in this process and it's been amazing.
