Happy New Year!
This January, Seeds celebrates the start of the new year by activating and stimulating readers with exciting stories from our Seedlings and inspirational stories from renowned artists. This month we have narratives from a future entrepreneur, architect, art therapist, and a Seeds scholar who has a love for ornithology, the study of birds.
Seeds dedicates this new year to emphasizing how important art is, and we continuously seek to further spread our artistic resources to a wide range of audiences. Join Seeds in providing these resources for our amazing and talented community of young aspiring artists throughout 2023.
See you again next month for our February Newsletter!

On the right track
I am interested in illustration for children’s novels, magazines, and graphic novels as well as visual development for the animation industry. I have an interest in character design and stories; each of these career paths pertains to my interests in some way.

Voice of an artist
With my goal of entrepreneurship, I hope to marry this goal with my skills as an artist and create a bond that is both fulfilling and meaningful. I find myself being most influenced by artists such as James Jean and Alvin Alifan, who have styles that spoke to the core of my being and directly inspire me to become a better artist.
Juliet Michiko Goto
Throughout the last school year at City-As-School, I let go of science and instead let myself be as creative as humanly possible. I learned about new mediums like welding and stone carving and only took art-based internships; it’s been the best year of my life. Recently though, I’ve been finding myself missing science and the natural world like an amputee missing a limb. I used to be passionate about the ocean and constantly studying it – I missed that mental stimulation.
Antonio Ariel Gomez
I started drawing in the summer of 2020 as a way of isolating myself from the already isolated world. I looked for two different colored sharpies, and I doodled away. I later contacted a friend who also paints and asked him if we could make something together. From that point on, I always wanted to make more.

Becoming an Architect
When I get older, I plan to become an architect. I am fascinated by the influence a space can have on a person’s experience. Therefore, my dream is to explore ways I can create that influence in my career through the spaces I am tasked with planning.
Continuing my Journey
However, these classes are not only for helping me build my portfolio, but also, for investigating how art is perceived and taught. In terms of college, I want to major in art and psychology to become an art therapist. Art has personally helped me express myself as well influenced my view of the world.
