Kevin Lin is a grade 12 student currently attending Strathmore High school. As a matter of fact he has been with us at Golden Hills since Grade 9! Kevin is a talented artist whose artistic ability has always been evident. Kevin says he first became interested in art during grades 3 and 4 and continued his interest throughout his schooling. Now in grade 12 he is finalizing his plans for a career where he can do what he is passionate about and has a great talent for.
More recently, Kevin’s skills and most of all drive, has grown and developed tremendously. Kevin has decided that he would like to study interior design, and spent six weeks in China over the summer completing an intensive Interior Design/Drafting course at Jiangxi Fine Arts Training Institute. His course work required that he complete up to twelve drawings a day which is no small feat.
His dedication and serious approach to his studies allowed him to return to Strathmore High School with an impressively mature and technically refined portfolio, which is far beyond his years of experience. Together, he and his art teacher Ms. Brandy Roberts, are working to build upon, and compile his portfolio for submission to the Rhode Island School of Interior Design and New York School of Interior Design where he plans to attend next fall.
“Kevin’s hard work and ambition is a source of pride and inspiration to both is instructors and peers alike”, says Ms. Roberts. Hard work really does pay off and Golden Hills is proud of Kevin and his accomplishments.
