Olivia Nienaber: Inspiring Creativity

Through WBCA, the community learns and grows from the perspectives of artists. Exhibitions open our eyes to the work of artists of different media and cultures, from local high schoolers and students to local, national, and international professionals. Artists share the ability to look at the world, and in doing so, help us see where we stand in it.

“White Bear Center for the Arts gives me the opportunity to take a variety of classes in pottery, leather crafting, painting, fused glass, peg loom weaving, jewelry making, and drawing. Every class is taught by a professional artist, and I am grateful to have received guidance from them. The classes are affordable, and the availability of scholarships provide me with exceptional arts education as a home-school student, and at a time when my family’s financial resources can be scarce.
I appreciate the artist-educators who want to help me build my skills in the visual arts, as well as the students in the classes who encourage me and give me feedback on what I am creating. This sense of community and support for one another is something that sets WBCA apart from other organizations.
Because of my experiences at WBCA, I am looking at colleges which offer majors in visual arts, graphic design, entrepreneurship, and the environment.”
