Mollie loves EAC because . . .
Offering one of the center's first adaptive ceramic art classes is one of the major highlights of teaching art at the center. Additionally, she enjoys having students come back to her classes and seeing their growth as artists. Year after year, Mollie has been able to see so many young and talented artists develop their skills and that is something she enjoys as a teacher.
