    "My contribution to the world is my ability to draw.

    I will draw as much as I can for as many people as I can for as  long as I can.
    Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times.
    It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic".

    This year the Sewanhaka High School Art Department is finding new and creative ways to bring students together while showcasing the importance of Art Education. In support of Art month, the staff had every Art student create a butterfly and posted them in the hallways of Sewanhaka.
