In Their Own Words:

Alexandra Torinus, LLC Instructor:

“I’m always amazed when my students turn on a projector for the first time. Their investigation of the world is suddenly lit up on the screen, and they are seeing the smallest thing, a pinecone, a wave, or a spoonbecoming magnificent as they realize the power of what they have seen with their own eyes. These are the moments that thrill me.”

Thomas Hays, LLC Student:

“It was fun to finally be in a space where I could work with other creative people who brought their own vision, talent, and ideas to the table.”
