“Living with other artists who have the same drive and determination that I do has been a rare opportunity. It has allowed me to network and collaborate with other residents to create fantastic projects and to open doors to work together in the future.”

“Being surrounded by a community of creative people, I have learned new things about art and how others create art. It has broadened my knowledge and has made me a more successful artists overall.”

“As artists, we can oftentimes catch negative comments about studying the arts, and then it is part of our schooling to have our work critiqued on a regular basis. Living in an arts community helps us to deal with those things because we all support each other. We brainstorm, we go to each other’s performances and exhibits, we create a supportive community where we all can thrive.”

“I love living in a community of like-minded people. I look forward to coming home to a bunch of unique, chaotic, and hard-at-work artistic minds every day.”
