About Leilani: “Art empowers Sienna, and she empowers others as artists. Sienna is a confident and creative artist who is always planning ahead to make thoughtful and unique choices in her artwork. She is always open to learning new ideas and styles, and carefully analyzes options like color choice and composition. She gives great advice to the student artists around her, encouraging others with positivity. Sienna’s vibrant and kind personality shines through in her artwork” – Mrs. Graves

Student Voice: “I love art because I can express myself and how I feel, so I get to be creative. I can color, paint, use clay, and create art in my own way. Art makes me feel creative. I believe that everybody can be an artist because it’s about your own style.” – Sienna
