“The Fine Arts program at Durham Tech gave me a future and offered all of the classes I wanted like figure drawing and painting. It is the best avenue to get the art degree I want when I transfer, which is ultimately graphic design. The instructors in the program are truly the best art teachers I’ve ever had.”
