“I’ve always loved to paint more than draw. I love how in painting I can make a mistake, and instead of erasing it, I have to find a way to make it part of the bigger picture. Another reason why I love painting so much is because of the colors. In painting, I get to blend different colors together to create an amazing piece. When I paint, I use colors to tell a story. Each color means something in that piece and helps create my picture. I guess I love painting so much because it allows me to express myself in ways that I normally feel like I can’t. I love taking a blank canvas and bringing it to life through color. Color makes this world a little brighter, without it, our world would be pretty boring.” – Myles Vanden Wyngaard, class of 2022
