"Sarah Gorham's class that I took last semester was an amazing outlet for my creative talent. The spontaneity of the class was welcoming and challenging to all of the students. There are few opportunities @ UNE where undergrad students are challenged to use there own raw unpolished talent to produce work that is so personal and so vulnerable to others' interpretation (and our own standards we set for ourselves). ... Innovation and creative insight are essential for breakout success in any profession in the real world. The art class challenges the brain and the hand and our inner person to explore our creative imagination and our relationship with our world and ourselves. I need this class in my life and in my education for so many reasons. All of the students at UNE would greatly benefit from any of the art classes @ UNE and most definitely a class with Sarah Gorham."
