Hear what students have to say

Leila Valencia

Leila earned her Associate in Arts degree in May 2016 and will transfer to NIU in the fall to study studio art. She hopes to become an art professor at a college or university.

Her oil painting, "Fertilizing Trash Dogu" won a Purchase Award at the MCC Spring 2016 Student Art Show. "I was influenced by my non-western art Learning Community class. We learned about a devotional figure from the Japanese Neolithic Period. It was so interesting and I wanted to express it in art."
