Grace Burke is majoring in Art with Certificate in Event Management and will graduate in December 2023. Her mediums include Oil Pastel Drawings, Digital Art, and Drawings. By majoring in art, she is able to explore different art courses and techniques.
Art is important to Grace because it allows her to express herself and her creativity. She found a passion for art through elementary school. She is grateful to have gone to a school system that provides art classes. Grace’s two oil pastel drawings are part of an incomplete miniseries. She has taken up-close photographs of flowers and depicted them using oil pastels. She is showcasing perspective.
Grace’s advice to aspiring artists is, “Be creative and do not be afraid to make something new.”

Grace is one of the artists who will be featured at the Stanley Campus Council's April event. Join us on April 13th, 2023, in the Stanley's lobby for On Display: A Student Art Showcase. This program was the personal project of 22/23 Stanley Campus Council Intern, Lily Hester. Their main goal is to dedicate an evening for non-art majors to have the space and time to showcase the art they have created and tell their story of how they incorporate art into their lives while balancing school and life.
