…….
Two art students reveal some of the curious events which accompany  their lifelong pursuit of drawing skills.   From failing Watercolor Class at 8 years to getting carotenemia after too many hours at the drawing board, it’s clear Art isn’t always an easy companion…
…except when Art is the only thing that comforts.
