*Leonardo da Vinci Quote: To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything you see.
If you are looking to explore art the Texas Art Supply holds classes as well as visiting local studios and galleries.
Garcia defines success not by monetary value, but by respect. Evolving your mind, having respect for yourself, and by people speaking highly of you when you leave the room. With respect you can do anything.
