Hello, My name is Matthew. I'm currently enrolled with The Academy of Art University, and finally following a passion that has lived inside of me since the day I was born. I hope to be able to continue to follow my dreams, and one day become a professional artist. I would be so grateful for any amount donated to me. I'm finally in the right place in my life, and I'm living my dream and learning so much, but just like so many other students I'm learning that getting any kind of education is expensive. My tuition itself is very expensive, as well as all of the art supplies that I have to purchase throughout the year. Being able to continue to go to art school is such an amazing gift itself. It not only lets me gain the knowledge I've desired all of my life, but it allows me to continue to teach and work with mentally disabled men and women by means of art therapy. Thank you for taking the time to read about my cause, and I hope you have an amazing day!
