After I completed EWI’s Training for Success, so many positive changes took place in my life. I became more confident about my art work and I took many risks doing different projects including several local exhibitions where I sold some of my paintings and prints. In addition, I had my first paid job as an artist working for a local newspaper and painting murals in DC.
I highly recommend Training for Success to any immigrant woman who is ready and serious about her talents and art. You can gain the confidence to pursue your dreams, and EWI will give you the push you need to keep going and build your art career. Isabel Castaneda
