"Cecil's Fine Arts Program provided me the space to breathe while building my portfolio for my undergraduate degree. There was a freedom to create what I wanted and have the ability to carry out that vision with guidance from my peers and professors. I was given the tools to make work that I related to while honing my skills for future art practice. I am currently pursuing my art degree at the Maryland Institute College of Art." - Andrew Seydell, drawing/painting alumni
