Hispanic Heritage Month

Quote of the Day

Hola a todos, 

We will continue to celebrate Hispanic heritage month.

Today’s quote comes from the Spanish Artist Pablo Piccasso who is best known for his influence on 20th century art. He once said:

“Todos los niños nacen artistas. El problema es cómo seguir siendo artista al crecer.”

Every child is born an artist. The problem lies in how to remain an artist as you grow up

- Pablo Picasso
